APC to guide Nigeria to its manifest destiny- Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has announced his intention to run for president in 2023.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) expresses his belief that the APC would continue to develop a Nigeria that all citizens can be proud of.  

The Vice President declared this on Saturday night at the APC Convention that was held at Eagle Square in Abuja.  

The Vice President spoke soon before President Muhammadu Buhari’s address.  


According to a statement issued by his spokesperson, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo stated that the ruling party will fulfil its goal of universal health care for all.   

“We will continue undaunted in the task of building infrastructure that will be the foundation of the great modern economy of our dreams”.

“We will continue in the task of building a strong, united, fair and just Nigeria; a Nigeria where every young man and woman can find opportunities to work and prosper,” he added.  

He asked the party’s new leaders to “concentrate on the goal of lifting 100 million people out of poverty in this decade, as promised by this administration under President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership.” 

“We will not relent; we will not look back, and we will not falter. And by the grace of God, this party, our party, the All Progressives Congress, will in the coming decades lead Nigeria and its great peoples to its manifest destiny.”  

He spoke, “The years of construction are usually challenging and sometimes painful; the construction of a huge structure necessitates deep roots into the earth and a foundation as deep into the ground as the enormous edifice that it will sustain.”   

“We cannot deny the difficulties we have encountered as a party, a government, and a nation.” 

“In sections of the nation, we have had to deal with terrorist activity, insurgency, and security issues.  

“Our people, on the other side, have remained strong, resilient, and determined to see the Nigeria of our dreams become a reality. Meanwhile, our administration has been constant, steadfast, dedicated, and focused.”
