2023: Nigerians deserve a leader like Osinbajo, says APC group
Meanwhile, a group, Progressives Opinion Leaders Group (POLG) had urged Osinbajo to contest the 2023 presidential election, saying he is a patriotic and detribalised Nigerian who will commit himself to work for the nation’s growth and development.
Speaking during a courtesy visit to a national newspaper headquarters in Abuja on Thursday, January 6, the national coordinator of the group, Shettima Abba Gana, said Nigeria must move forward.
Gana said Nigerians deserved a leader that could consolidate on the gains of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
“Nigerians must move forward and be properly secured. We deserve a leader that his body language can bring about a stable political atmosphere that can in turn lead to economic and job progress.”
