Presidency: I Don’t Owe Anybody Allegiance – Osinbajo Speaks On Betraying Tinubu
Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President and Presidential candidate in 2023, has stated that he owes no allegiance to anyone.
Outside of his oath of office and the allegiance he vowed to Nigerians when he took office in 2015, Osinbajo stated that he owes no single individual any allegiance.
He made the announcement during his political consultations in Ogun State on Tuesday.
Addressing his followers, Osinbajo said: “After all, I have learnt, if called upon to serve the nation, should I say No? I have decided that I will run for office.
“I have sworn an oath to the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It is an oath to our people, our children, and the future of Nigeria. I owe nobody else any allegiance outside the oath.”
Osinbajo disclosed this amid claims of betraying his alleged godfather and former principal, Bola Tinubu, by declaring for the Presidency when the former Lagos State governor is also contesting for the same office.
