Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday dismissed reports of a plan to announce his presidential bid ahead of the 2023 elections after the All Progressives Congress (APC) convention.
Reports had emerged online on Monday that Osinbajo would announce his intention to run for the 2023 presidency soon.
However, Osinbajo through his spokesman, Laolu Akande, clarified that the report making the rounds is false and speculative snippets.
He added that any information about Osinbajo will come directly from his office and not the press.
Laolu made this known in a tweet on Monday.
