As the 2023 general election gathers momentum, a political support group, Progressive Consolidation Group (PCG) has drummed support for Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to contest the 2023 presidential election.
For the purpose of re-strategising the priorities of the Muhammadu Buhari presidency, enhancing progressive reforms and national unity, according to the group, Osinbajo is a good candidate for the presidency in 2023.
The National Coordinator of the group, Ahmed Mohammed disclosed this Friday when he led other members from six geo-political zones to pay Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari at the Government House, Katsina Mohammed explained that the vice-president “is the most qualified and acceptable candidate to sustain and improve the positive gains, achievements and legacies of President Buhari and capable of tackling the myriad of developmental challenges facing the nation.
“Looking at the extant developmental challenges that the country is contending with, it is only wise for the party to choose a most qualified and most acceptable candidate to sustain and improve on the positive gains, achievements and legacies of President Buhari.
“It is in view of this development that we at the PCG feel convinced that an Osinbajo presidency come 2023 will bring down tension, facilitate unity and stability as well as accelerate further progress in all sectors of the economy.
“Therefore, we are here before you to seek for your support, wise counsel and advice towards accelerating the possibilities of collective success.”
Also speaking at the session, Masari said what members of the APC needed at the moment “is to ensure that the party wins the forthcoming general election irrespective of ethnic differences.”
According to the governor, there are tremendous achievements under the APC administration in the past six years in terms of security, payment of pension and gratuity as well as developmental projects in the country.
The group also visited the Emir of Daura, Dr. Farouq Umar Farouq, where they canvased his support and blessing to enable the vice president succeed President Buhari come 2023.
