The spokesman of the Yemi Osinbajo Campaign Organisation, Mr Richard Akinnola, has congratulated Bola Tinubu, former governor of Lagos State, on his impending emergence as All Progressives Congress presidential candidate.
Akinnola congratulated Tinubu in a post on his Facebook page.
Congratulations, Asiwaju Tinubu, the presumed winner of the primaries.
In any contest, there must be a winner. However, I’m very proud of my choice of support in the person of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
I have no iota of regret over my support for him. It was a privilege to play a pivotal role for him during the process. I would gladly do it over and over again. It’s a matter of conviction.
And for all our supporters and other volunteers who worked assiduously, day and night on the PYO project, God bless you all. I’m so proud of all of you.
As l often say, God rules in the affairs of men and He has a purpose for what just happened. Understandably, many of you are dispirited and downcast but do not let your heart be troubled. There must be a reason God allowed this. It may not be manifest to us now but later as He is all knowing.
I’m unfazed, unbowed and proud of PYO. Our supporters, abeg, make una shake it off. No be say person die, Life goes on. No yawa.
Tinubu is poised to win APC presidential ticket, as counting of votes continue at the Eagle Square.
There’s been bad blood between the vice president’s camp and Tinubu’s camp, following the former’s decision to join the presidential race, which Tinubu apparently considers an affront.
Tinubu first brought Osinbajo to limelight by appointing him as Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice in Lagos.
Tinubu also nominated him as the Vice President to President Muhammadu Buhari following the victory of APC in 2015.
