Laolu Akande, the VP, Yemi Osinbajo’s Chief Media Aide, has revealed that his boss is no longer a member of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC in Lagos state.
The National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Monday dismissed the declaration of his hitherto political godson, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, to challenge for the 2023 Nigeria General Election, focusing on that he had no son mature enough to make such a declaration.
Earlier on Monday, Osinbajo, Nigeria’s VP since May 2015, said that he would need to succeed his principal, Muhammadu Buhari, and complete all that the APC government began seven years ago.
Osinbajo and Tinubu have a set of experiences as political associates.
Tinubu, as Lagos Governor, had in 1999 designated Osinbajo as Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of the state, a position the law professor held till 2007.
Osinbajo was a chieftain of the Lagos APC with his polling unit at Code 33, Unit 2 Victoria Garden City, Lagos.
However, Laolu Akande on Tuesday told reporters that the VP had moved his participation to Ogun State when he revalidated his APC Enrollment status in Ward One, Ikenne, Ogun State on February 9, 2021.
