Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that he's not contesting in the 2023 presidential election.
He made this public again after reports alleged that he had informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his ambition.
However, in an interview with Arise TV, Laolu Akande, who is the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, said the report is false and speculative. He said his previous tweets denying Osinbajo's ambition remain intact and that any information about the Vice President will come from him and not the media.
This will be the second time in about a month that rumors of Osinabjo joining the 2023 Presidential race have surfaced.
