I am the most prepared presidential aspirant, says Osinbajo

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says he is the most prepared of all aspirants for the 2023 presidential election.

Osinbajo made the submission on Thursday in Yenagoa when he paid a courtesy visit to the Bayelsa State Council of Traditional Rulers in continuation of his consultations ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

The vice-president said he had the requisite experience needed to pilot the affairs of the country.

“The chief objective of my coming is to formally let you know, in a domain where I am a chief, of my intention to run for the presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“I made the formal declaration on April 11.

“All of us are aware, that I have served as the vice-president and God helping us, I will serve until May 29, 2023, in that capacity.

“It is my desire that comes that day, I will succeed our current president as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“As vice-president, I have served under a president that has given me the opportunity to see for myself and observe at very close quarters, all that is required to run this very complex, very diverse nation, Nigeria.

“I have also served on many occasions as acting president when the president was away.

“All of that has given me more than an insider view of how to effectively run the affairs of this country with its various challenges.

“I will say of all the contestants, and I will say so most humbly, clearly that I am the most prepared to hit the ground running.

“I will be ready on the first day of the assignment because I have seven years of training; I have the experience,’’ Osinbajo said.

The vice-president said that in no distant time, he would have acquired eight years of experience as vice-president.
