Osinbajo to APC delegates: I will be ready from day one

VICE President Yemi Osinbajo has said he would be ready to provide quality leadership for Nigeria from his first day in office if elected president.

He stated this while addressing delegates at the party’s presidential primary in Abuja Tuesday.

Unlike other aspirants in the South-West except for Pastor Tunde Bakare, who stepped down for the party’s national leader, Bola Tinubu, Osinbajo said he remained in the race.

Senator Ibikunle Amosun and Governor Kayode Fayemi, who stepped down for Tinubu, are from the South-West where Osinbajo hails from.

“it is possible to have a world-class system in Nigeria,” Osinbajo said while seeking the delegates’ votes.

He added, “Everything we can imagine or dream is within our reach. All that is left is for us to make the right decision tonight. You cannot wish this country well and vote for someone you do not believe in”

“When you vote tonight, know that your vote carries the answer for the prayers that you have prayed for the future of your children and for the future of our country.”

He explained that in the discharge of his duty as the Vice President in the past seven years, he had been prepared in the “most profound way” for the task ahead, stressing he would be ready to deliver from day one in office.
