Presidential aspirant and Vice-president of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo has reacted after a zealous supporter, Olugbenga Olaoye, referred to APC chieftain, Bola Tinubu as a sick person.
Olugbenga, a Co-Convener of ‘Osinbajo Think Thank’ while reacting to the presidential ambition of Tinubu during an interview with Arise TV said that Nigerians do not want another sick president who is constantly going on trips.
He said, “We cannot afford another sick President who will be travelling to London all the time as we currently have, we need someone who is mentally sound. The little time that Osinbajo spent leading FEC was different. Things were moving”
Reacting to the comment through his spokesman, Laolu Akande, the vice-president stated that Olugbenga does not represent the office of the VP nor his campaign team and should be ignored.
The disclaimer was made via the spokesman official twitter page.
The tweet reads, “Indeed this gentleman does not represent the VP nor the Office. His views are completely & totally his own. This particular opinion he has expressed on TV is deplorable and in bad taste. I am not even aware of the so-called Osinbajo Think Tank he purports to represent. Pls IGNORE.
