Breaking! Osinbajo Accepts Defeat – Urge Supporters to be Calm
Vice-President Yemi Osibajo has reportedly accepted defeat even though vote counting at the APC Special Presidential Primaries is still ongoing.
From all indications, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is leading other aspirants with a very wide margin with the closest being former Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi while Osibajo is coming a distant third at the ongoing vote count.
Meanwhile, the director of Osibajo Media Council Richard Akinnola II has issued a congratulatory letter to Asiwaju while urging PYO supporters to be calm and accept the imminent loss.
Excerpts of the letter are reproduced below.
Congratulations, Asiwaju Tinubu, the presumed winner of the primaries. In any contest, there must be a winner.
However, I’m very proud of my choice of support in the person of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. I have no iota of regret over my support for him.
It was a privilege to play a pivotal role for him during the process. I would gladly do it over and over again. It’s a matter of conviction.
And for all our supporters and other volunteers who worked assiduously, day and night on the PYO project, God bless you all. I’m so proud of all of you.
As l often say, God rules in the affairs of men and He has a purpose for what just happened.
Understandably, many of you are dispirited and downcast but do not let your heart be troubled. There must be a reason God allowed this.
It may not be manifest to us now but later as He is all knowing. I’m unfazed, unbowed and VERY PROUD of PYO. Our supporters, abeg, make una shake it off. No be say person die😂Life goes on. No yawa.
