Osinbajo Denies 2019 Presidential Ambition”

Osinbajo, who spoke at a feast in commemoration of this year's eid-el-kabir celebration, had represented President Muhammadu Buhari at the occassion.

The group said up till now Nigeria has had clueless presidents, but Osinbajo has shown he is different.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday disowned a group which created a website for the objective of supporting him as a candidate for the presidency in the 2019 general election.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, last week, spoke tough to separatist agitators in the country, saying enough of such dispositions that tended to undermine the nation's unity.

"Please, disregard this website created by faceless people for mischievous purposes. It has absolutely nothing to do with the Vice President".

The group however stated clearly on its site that the vice president is not party to their activities or funding them.

The group however adds that the vice president has no connection with the campaign as "we have never met him".

The group, which is recruiting volunteers for the project, wants Osinbajo to stand as presidential candidate in the 2019 election.

"Let us make history together", the group said as it enjoined Nigerians to join it either as volunteers or members.
