Information unfolding holds that President Muhammadu Buhari is backing the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo as his preferred aspirant ahead of the National Convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), billed to hold this weekend on 6th June 2022 in Abuja.

Ourworldgist gathers that, a senior presidential aide of President Buhari disclosed this on Thursday being 2nd June 2022 said Buhari strongly believed that having worked closely with Osinbajo since May 2015, Osinbajo is the best aspirant to continue with the policies of his administration.

President Muhammadu Buhari is also said to be impressed with the way the Vice-President has piloted the affairs of the country during the period he held the fort as Acting President.

He said this backing by Buhari is responsible for the confidence Osinbajo has exuded so far in the race for the presidential ticket of the party.

Speaking further, he added that following the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), some power brokers in the APC tried to project Senate President, Ahmad Lawan as their best so as to rival Atiku in the North but their proposal was rejected.

” As of today, Tuesday, the President is firmly behind the Vice-President as his preferred aspirant. He has refused to shift ground even after some members of his kitchen cabinet started rooting for Ahmad Lawan after the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as PDP presidential candidate”.

” Some northern powerful forces and religious leaders are pushing for a Northern candidate while others are behind the moves to draft former President Goodluck Jonathan into the race so that he can serve just one term and return power back to the North in 2027 but Buhari is not buying into all that”.

” Those pushing for Lawan had argued that since Atiku is from the North East of Adamawa, the APC should also present its candidate from another North-East state but the proposal was quickly shot down by some concerned stakeholders who also have the ears of the President”.

Recall that apart from Prof Yemi Osinbajo, there are also other big names like Former Governor of Lagos state, Senator Bola Asiwaju Tinubu, Ahmed Lawal ( Senate President ), Rotomi Ameachi amongst others jostling for presidential ticket of the APC.

Meanwhile, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has earlier emerged as the flagbearer of the leading opposition party, Peoples’ Democratic Party ( PDP ).
