Osinbajo foresees his fate, leaves Eagle Square amid ballot sorting
Osinbajo on Wednesday, June 8, departed Eagle Square, Abuja, the venue of the presidential primary of the APC, foreseeing his ambition to become President Muhammadu Buhari's successor will not see the light of day.
Although the Nigerian vice president was rated among Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's top opponents in the primary, unfolding events at the election were indicating that his presidential ambition for 2023 will go nowhere.
Osinbajo's departure from the venue was coming at a time when the votes cast by APC delegates are yet to be counted.
