The Office of the Vice President says permutations around 2023 presidential race is a distraction as Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has not declared interest to contest.

Mr Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja, said the Office of the Vice President had no connection with an online attempt to rally support for Mr Osinbajo.

“The attention of the Office of the Vice President has been drawn to a website: supportosinbajo.ng that is calling on Nigerians to join a volunteer group mobilising support for Osinbajo ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

“Details of this website and the solicitation of the group are currently trending on WhatsApp with a suggestion that Osinbajo has “quietly” declared interest in the 2023 election.

“The Office of the Vice President is not in any way connected to this website or the group behind it and considers such an enterprise an unnecessary distraction.

“Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election; but he is rather focused on working in his capacity as vice president in the current administration to address all the compelling issues in the country and concerns of Nigerians, including finding effective and lasting solutions to the security challenges.
