Few Weeks to 2023 Presidential Election, Osinbajo Visits Tinubu

The meeting between the duo which was held behind closed doors lasted for almost an hour

About two months to the February 25, 2023 presidential poll, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday paid a visit to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu at his residence in Abuja.

The planned but impromptu visit was coming six months after the party’s presidential primary that produced Tinubu as the party’s candidate.

At about 7 pm Wednesday, the Vice President in company of a few of his personal aides visited Tinubu.

THISDAY gathered from a reliable source that the meeting between the duo which was held behind closed doors lasted for almost an hour.

The source who did not want to be named said: “The vice president came in at about 7 pm and entered into a closed-door meeting with Asiwaju. The meeting lasted for about an hour.”

The vice president reportedly told Tinubu about the various administrative activities that have kept him away from the campaign but assured that he was with them in spirit.

Osinbajo, a pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God had maintained a graveyard silence following the decision of Tinubu to pick a fellow Muslim from the North East and a former Governor of Borno state, Senator Kashim Shettima.

While the controversy raged on, the vice president intentionally refused to bear his mind on the Muslim-Muslim ticket of his erstwhile political benefactor.

Osinbajo who was one of the aspirants that lost to Tinubu has not been seen at the campaign of the ruling party after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) lifted the ban on political campaigns on September 28, a development that has raised dust within the party.
