Nigeria’s Vice President and presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Congress Party, Yemi Osinbajo, has declared he would assume office from day one if elected as president in 2023.
Osinbajo made this known in a statement signed by his media aide, Laolu Akande during his consultation visit to APC delegates and traditional leaders in Cross River and Bayelsa States on Thursday.
He claimed that his seven years as Vice President, as well as his expertise in other areas of government, have equipped him with the knowledge, intelligence, and know-how to hit the ground running if elected president.
While addressing the members of the Cross River State Traditional Council, Osinbajo added that Nigeria would overcome its economic and security challenges.
He said: “The truth of the matter is that, every country is faced with peculiar challenges – in our case, we are faced with security and economic challenges”.
“But we also know that God Himself equips us with all the necessary resources to defeat every challenge. I believe very strongly that God helping us, our economic and security challenges will not only be dealt with, but will be stepping stones for a greater nation and a more prosperous and secured nation”.
“Your Royal Majesty and Paramount Ruler present, in my capacity as VP, I had the great fortune of working with President Buhari, who in every real sense exposed me to all one should know about governance at the highest level in our country”.
