    In a video released on his Twitter handle, Osinbajo said his experience as Vice President over the past seven years placed him in a better position to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

    He has since then embarked on consultations with APC stakeholders.

    On Wednesday, the Vice President visited stakeholders in Taraba and Adamawa states, where he said his only reason for wanting to become President was to serve Nigerians.

    “My reason for aspiring for the office of the President of Nigeria is to serve the Nigerian people. I have no other reason or objective except to serve,” he said.
