2023 presidency: South West to reach consensus soon – Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says the All Progressives Congress, APC, in South West would soon reach a consensus candidate for the forthcoming primary election.
He said the consensus arrangement is part of efforts to address the likely disunity, animosity and hostility that may arise from the presidential primary.
Osinbajo, who is also gunning for the APC presidential ticket, spoke during an interactive section with the party’s delegates in Osogbo, the Osun State capital on Friday.
Former Lagos State Governor and national leader of the party, Bola Tinunu and the Vice President are the major aspirants contending for the sole APC ticket from the region.
Asked how the region could curb the brewing crisis engendered by the presidential ambition of some stakeholders in the South West, Osinbajo said consultations are ongoing to arrive at a consensus candidate.
He said, “I believe strongly in the wisdom of Yoruba elders and leaders, and consultations are always ongoing.
“I believe that very soon we will resolve whatever differences exist and we will reach an agreement on the way forward.”
