*VP adds: Vote for the right person to lead this country into a better future
*Says, I’ve been prepared in the most profound ways, I’ll be ready from day one
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged delegates of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, not to vote for some they don’t believe in as the party’s presidential candidate.
Osinbajo who is contesting to emerge the party’s flagbearer said this on Tuesday during the party’s presidential primary in Abuja.
As he made his way to the podium, the crowd at the Convention ground, especially those close to the podium, gave the VP a rousing welcome that lasted for several minutes, with some chanting excitedly, “it is you we want (as president)!” The same scene repeated itself after the VP concluded his speech and made his way through the aisle back to his seat.
Osinbajo, while speaking, told the delegates, “You cannot wish the country well and vote for someone you do not believe in.”
According to the Vice President, “Nigeria has the talents, resources and the resourcefulness to become one of the world’s leading economies.”
“Everything we can imagine or dream is within our reach. All that is left is for us to make the right decision tonight,” he stated.
The VP added, “to our dear delegates, when you vote tonight, know that your vote carries the answer to your prayers for our country and its future.
“I have been prepared in the most profound ways for the task ahead, and I will be ready from day one.”
