APC presidential primary: We will win, says Osinbajo
PM News reported that Osinbajo told his supporters in Lagos that he was in the state which he called “home” to thank God “for all He has done and all He is yet to do.”
He expressed hope that he would clinch the APC presidential ticket, adding the delegates will massively support him.
“I am not here for a campaign or for consultation, I just want to celebrate with my brothers and sisters in Lagos state.
“God will help us on Sunday and we will win.
There is no doubt at all, we will win by the grace of God. And we will go on to win the general election for our party, the APC.
“I know that we will have massive support from all of our delegates.”
My experiences will make me a better president, says Osinbajo
Osinbajo said that having served for seven years as the vice president of Nigeria, his experiences would enable him provide quality leadership for the nation.
According to him, in those seven years, President Muhammadu Buhari in many ways, ensured that I was exposed to everything about governing a complex and diverse country such as Nigeria.
“I have also acted as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria at various times,” he said.
He said God had allowed him to serve and gave him those experiences for a purpose, which definitely was to serve the nation further.
“The truth of the matter is that God does not make a mistake. That is the reason why God gave me all the experiences and that time has come,” the VP added.
