Osinbajo is Sellable for 2023 Presidency- Nasarawa Governor



The Governor of Nasara State, Abdullahi Sule, on Monday, has said the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo is a sellable product for the 2023 presidential election.

The Governor said this when addressing a political group, the Progressive Consolidation Group (PCG), which had come to sell the vice president as a potential presidential material ahead of the 2023 polls. The group, led by its National Chairman, Rabiu Aliyu Kurfi, was at the Government House in Lafia, the state House of Assembly and the Palace of the Emir of Lafia, and Chairman of the Nasarawa State Council of Traditional Rulers, Justice Sidi Bage (rtd) to solicit support for Osinbajo as President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023.


Addressing the group, the Governor said “not every product is sellable, but Vice President Osinbajo is a sellable product.

“You are speaking about continuation, which is what we believe here in Nasarawa State. You have been speaking about consolidation, and we know the challenges of consolidation and the continuation of our party. This is a political party that is lucky or unlucky to be built around one man. And for us, the progressive governors are seeing at how do we sustain the party beyond the one man.

“Then you went more details to be talking about Professor Osinbajo; a man of God, a professional lawyer, a family man; a man that I have come to respect because I was even given the opportunity to speak on his last birthday on behalf of the governors,” he noted.

Sule claimed Osinbajo was a man he had come to respect because he knew the vice president very well.

“We have the opportunity of having a gentleman that is a total party person, loyal man to Mr. President. And I believe you are selling him earlier than he is selling himself, which is the way it is supposed to be.

“And those who are supposed to be talking about you are those who admire you, who understand who you are and are going in that direction. So, if you are going in that direction to sell this gentleman (Osinbajo), not every product is sellable. Osinbajo is a sellable product.”

At the State House of Assembly complex, the Speaker, Hon Ibrahim Balarabe Abdullahi, told the group that members of the state assembly are looking unto Governor Sule to give them the direction to follow.

“Whatever he (Sule) has agreed with you, I can assure you is our position. We are grassroots politicians because we are the ones relating with people at the grassroots, and his message will be taken to the grassroots at the appropriate time.

“So, have it at the back of your mind that as far as APC is concerned, the position of Governor Sule is the position of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly,” the Speaker re-echoed.
