‘No Yawa’: Osinbajo’s super fan throws in the towel, congratulates TinubuJune 8, 2022
Although the All Progressives Congress (APC) is yet to officially declare party leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as its presidential flag bearer in 2023, a supporter of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo may have seen the handwriting on the wall.
Richard Akinnola, a vocal fan of Osinbajo who is also vying for the APC ticket, has taken to his Facebook account to congratulate his favourite’s political rival.
Akinnola’s comment came after Tinubu took a commanding lead over the other candidates as the vote count continues in Abuja where the ruling APC is holding its presidential primary.
“Congratulations, Asiwaju Tinubu, the presumed winner of the primaries,” Akinnola wrote.
“In any contest, there must be a winner.
“However, I’m very proud of my choice of support in the person of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. I have no iota of regret over my support for him. It was a privilege to play a pivotal role for him during the process. I would gladly do it over and over again. It’s a matter of conviction.
“And for all our supporters and other volunteers who worked assiduously, day and night on the PYO project, God bless you all. I’m so proud of all of you.
“As l often say, God rules in the affairs of men and He has a purpose for what just happened.
“Understandably, many of you are dispirited and downcast but do not let your heart be troubled. There must be a reason God allowed this. It may not be manifest to us now but later as He is all knowing.
“I’m unfazed, unbowed and VERY PROUD of PYO. Our supporters, abeg, make una shake it off. No be say person die. Life goes on. No yawa.”
