A group, Businessmen for Osinbajo, on Wednesday asked Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to join the 2023 presidential race.
The group’s convener, Tayo Fashogbon, in a statement, said his members had begun plans to support Osinbajo with campaign funds.
“He (Osinbajo) is a patriotic and detribalized Nigerian who will commit himself to working for everyone.
“He’s the only one who holds such a promise among other Nigerians jostling for the plum job.
“The imperative for a president who is totally devoid of sectional interests has never been so paramount.
“This for the first-time businessmen have decided not to leave politics to politicians alone, but to be involved in the political destiny of our country.”
He said donations would come from “players in the oil and gas sector, real estate and building, transport and aviation, food and agriculture, power, construction, mining, road construction, automotive, market women and SMEs.
“We’re already putting plans in place to facilitate a fund-raising platform. We’re truly overwhelmed by the number of investors and other interest groups calling to donate for the course.
“This clearly demonstrates that millions of Nigerians across party lines are coming together.”
