Babafemi Ojudu, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on political matters, on Saturday dismissed a viral quote attributed to Vice-President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, that he will not contest for presidency in 2023 against the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
POLITICS NIGERIA recently reported that Osinbajo informed President Buhari of his interest in the 2023 presidential race — the same route Tinubu took.
But a quote linked to the Ogun-born politician seem to portray that Osinbajo has pulled out of the race. However, Ojudu, a top supporter of Osinbajo, says it’s “fake news”.
“Wherever you see this ‘broken news’ shout Fake ! Fake!! Fake!!! It is FAKE NEWS,” he said on his known Facebook page.
