With a few weeks to the commencement of the 2023 general elections, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has been accused of holding grudges against the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
This is coming from the National President of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, Yerima Shettima.
DAILY POST reports that Osinbajo has been noticeably absent from Tinubu’s presidential campaigns so far, unlike President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that Osinbajo endured a frosty relationship with Tinubu during the APC presidential primaries in 2022, as followers of the latter believed that the Vice President should have backed his political godfather.
During the APC primaries, some staunch supporters of Tinubu had tagged Osinbajo a traitor, a betrayer and Judas, for daring to stand against the former governor of Lagos State.
One of such supporters, Tolu Babaleye had said: “This is the week that Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus Christ in the Christian calendar. Same week Osinbajo betrayed Tinubu. Same week is not a mere coincidence. May God be with Tinubu in Pilates’ Court.”
DAILY POST had reported that Joe Igbokwe, the Special Adviser for Drainage and Water Resources to Governor Babajide Sanwo- Olu, also subscribed to the notion of a betrayer.
“Is this how we will pay Asiwaju for helping to lift us up? This monumental betrayal has no part 2. I am totally diminished as a mortal who understands very well the meaning and the power of loyalty,” he said then
