Businessmen back Osibanjo for presidency

SUPPORTERS of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo under the aegis of Businessmen For Osinbajo have vowed to buy the nomination form of the All Progressives Congress for him to contest the 2023 presidential election.

The conveners of BFO, Dr Tayo Fashogbon and Olatunji Davies, made the pledge during the inauguration of the group attended by prominent businessmen in Abuja on Wednesday night.

According to them, the businessmen were wooing Osinbajo into the presidential race for continuity of the laudable projects and programmes of the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

Fashogbon said even though Osinbajo was yet to declare his interest in the presidency, BFO was putting structures in place to ensure that he emerged the next president of Nigeria “because he is competent, versatile and knowledgeable of the dynamics of the Nigerian business environment and the global economy.”

He said Osinbajo has not declared his presidential ambition because as a legal icon, he was aware that the Independent National Electoral Commission has not lifted the ban on electioneering and would therefore not jump the gun.

Fashogbon said the BFO resolved to go ahead with its inauguration for strategic planning and coordination of its activities.

He said, “I stand here to welcome you on this journey towards an elevated Nigeria. This elevation will be brought about by more intentional participation of the business community in the democracy of Nigeria.
