Professor Yemi Osibajo, the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Thursday, wowed passengers in a government-owned Bus Rapid Transit, BRT, where he campaigned for votes in next year general election.
Osinbajo joined other passengers from the Tafawa Balewa Square to Barracks area of Lagos, crusading the need to elect the party’s presidential flagbearer, Muhammadu Buhari, to bring about change in the governance of the country. Osinbajo said he adopted “unusual opportunities to reach out to Nigerians on the need to vote out the PDP.”
He said: “Every Nigerian knows that Maj. Gen. Buhari is a no-nonsense person. He is going to make changes that would turn Nigeria around for the better. Remember that the APC is the party of change. Collect your PVC and ensure that you vote for the APC.
“The only way to make an omelet is to break an egg. You have to do something and I think that all of us, whatever it is that we are involved in must be interested in making a difference in this country. This country needs help desperately. Considering the economy and the security challenges, everyone of us must be involved in trying to get a change.”
He also rebutted allegations of Buhari being a sponsor of the Boko Haram sect, dismissing it as “pure propaganda.” He held up assassination attempt against Buhari as evidence of his non-involvement with the terrorist sect’s activities. As attorney general and commissioner for Justice in Lagos State between 1999 and 2007, Osibajo said he was intolerant of corruption, citing the sacking of 22 magistrates and three judges for corrupt practices. Osinbajo was greeted by a large group of happy party followers, singing solidarity songs, when he alighted at the bus Barrack terminus.
