Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has spoken on how he was nominated to be President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in the 2015 presidential election. Osinbajo, speaking at a dinner organised for former Niger Delta agitators at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Wednesday, October 19, said he was he was nominated by “somebody somewhere”. The vice president however refrained from disclosing the identity of who nominated him.
Recall that controversy broke out recently when the author of Buhari’s biography, “Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria”, Prof. John Paden, claimed in the book that the president chose Osinbajo as his running mate despite the alleged opposition of a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Paden’s narrative contradicted the general belief that Tinubu was instrumental to the emergence of Osinbajo who served as his attorney-general when he (Tinubu) was the governor of Lagos state. The author claimed that the names of Tinubu; the then Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola; and Osinbajo were forwarded to Buhari for him to pick a running mate shortly after he emerged the party’s candidate at its convention in Lagos.
