An announcement on Wednesday marked by his representative, Tunde Rahman, read: “the general population of the south-west have supreme certainty and are exceedingly glad for the magnificent activity Professor Osinbajo is doing as Vice President of Nigeria
“The consideration of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Media Office has been attracted to the front page lead story of The SUN daily paper of yesterday, December 13, 2017, which amazingly and incredibly announced that President Muhammadu Buhari may pick Asiwaju Tinubu as his running mate for the 2019 race. This is an exemplary instance of completely and irredeemably counterfeit news.
“There is no observational or consistent reason for this wickedly theoretical story. Is it even possible, as the story heedlessly intimates, that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would consider coming back to full church work instead of keep running with his manager, President Buhari for a moment term if the last so chooses without as much as examining such a delicate issue with his gathering and with Asiwaju Tinubu? Regardless, is this story not by any stretch of the imagination outlandish and weak as the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket has an appointive command of four years out of which it has put in just more than two years and a half years?”

“This is obviously an endeavor to occupy the APC government from the yeoman’s activity it has been doing in safeguarding the nation from the profound established financial, political, security and good chaos acquired from the PDP’s 16 years mismanagement of Nigeria, induce emergency inside the gathering, stir unsafe ashes of religious alienation inside the gathering and the nation for the most part and stem the noteworthy advance being made in the reexamination and rejuvenation of Nigeria.
“There is more noteworthy rational soundness, responsibility and straightforwardness in the administration of the nation’s funds. The Boko Haram uprising has been considerably contained. We ought not enable ourselves to be wrecked from the activity we are viably embraced in satisfying our crusade guarantees moored on the tripod of containing uncertainty, subduing the scourge of debasement and reviving the economy.
“The Buhari and Osinbajo-drove Federal Government is deftly directing the nation out of a monetary retreat that was the aftereffect of the uncouthness of the PDP years of the insects. Asiwaju Tinubu will never bolster any endeavor to occupy Buhari and Osinbajo from the activity they are energetically doing through the sort of false report.
Specifically, this story does extraordinary shamefulness to Vice President Osinbajo. Here is a man of the most noteworthy uprightness, moral integrity, astonishing quietude, high astuteness and blameless validity. Here is a man of furious devotion and total dependability who will never do anything in word, thought or deed to undermine his manager. His obvious trustworthiness and unquestionable constancy to his pledge of office was shown certainly by his good lead amid the President’s medicinal excursion,” the announcement included.
