The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on Friday revealed what he would do if does not emerge as the presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress.
The presidential aspirant stated this while addressing delegates of the ruling party in Rivers State.
Osinbajo said despite the number of presidential aspirants in the party, everyone must rally around whoever emerges as the presidential candidate of the party.
He said there is no need for hostility among presidential aspirants as the ultimate goal remained the country’s unity.
The Vice President stated this in a statement released through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande.
The statement was titled ‘APC has greatest potential to do the best for Nigeria, says Osinbajo in rivers.’
He said, “We are all progressives, we represent the same point of view that this country can be better; that we can improve the fortunes of our young people; that our country can be a great place. Every one of us has that desire, and every one of us can achieve that, given the chance.
“Everywhere I’ve gone, I’ve pointed out that there is no need for conflict of any kind, especially among presidential aspirants. All of us, who are presidential aspirants, have either worked together or eaten together in one place or the other. We are aspirants today, but only one person would emerge, and we must be prepared to work with that person.
“We are also, of course, completely at one on the idea that the party needs to be united. So, everything that needs to be done is being done and will be done to ensure the unity of the aspirants.
“Our party is, as you know, not just the ruling party, but the party that has the greatest potential to do the best for this country.”
Osinbajo while speaking on his consultations with the delegates, he said, “What we spent our time doing today was talking more about national issues, about issues of development; and we all affirm that we have to do a lot of work; we are willing and able to do the work.”
