The Progressive Project (TPP) a political support group, has promised to mobilize support for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to become Nigeria’s president in 2023, because of his credentials and antecedents.
Mr. Jeffry Omoh, Head of TPP’s Situation Room said this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
Omoh said that the group would also work to de-emphasize money politics in the country.
He said that he had earlier addressed representatives of the support group from the country’s six geo-political zones where he emphasized the need to mobilize support for an Osinbajo presidency come 2023.
Omoh said that the group’s strategy was to emphasize mobilization of delegates’ patriotism, not mobilization of naira.
He urged them to get acquainted with their environment and to improve their interactions with people, especially those at the grassroots.
He also urged them to return with suggestions and ideas that TPP and its constituent teams could work with.
Speaking, Dr. Mustapha Jibril, the Niger Commissioner for Investment, Commerce, and Industry, described Osinbajo as a loyal and disciplined Vice President.
He said the loyalty demonstrated to President Muhammadu Buhari, disciplined focus and other good qualities of Osinbajo attracted members from various parts of the federation to work together to pursue a common cause of ensuring that he became the country’s next president.
Mr. Ibrahim Mohammed, a member of the support group said that the 2023 elections were not about zoning, but about the prospects of unity, sustainable progress, and development of the country.
“Our efforts here and the motivation for supporting Osinbajo is not about whether political power goes North or South.
“It is about consolidating on what has been achieved in the past towards throttling into a better future for all under a trustworthy and very capable leadership that would not need to offer bribes to party delegates before its emergence.
“Among recommendations proffered by representatives of various pro-Osinbajo support groups were the implementation of mobilization efforts across various wards in 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the country.
“Focus on reaching prospective delegates to All Progressives Congress (APC) National Convention and creation of state coordination teams across the federation,” he said.
