FCT, Abuja - The undisclosed presidential ambition of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is causing a disquiet among the stakeholders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

What if Osinbajo is Buhari's successor by Arogbonlo Israel - 2023

Vanguard noted that the governors elected on the platform of APC are uncertain as to the direction ahead of the 2023 general election.

It stated that the governors said the seeming unwillingness of President Buhari to identify with either Osinbajo or Tinubu has put the two potential successors in a quandary.

According to the report, Osinbajo’s fate is not helped by the claim of a ‘trust deficit’ that arose from his time as acting president in 2018, adding that since then, President Buhari has not again transferred presidential powers to his deputy. 

It was gathered that the contest for national chairman of the ruling party was at weekend narrowing to a two-man race with former Governor Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa state and erstwhile minister of solid minerals, Alhaji Bawa Bwari as the main contenders. The two candidates are being supported by the APC governors.
