The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Tuesday drew the curtain on his campaign rally in Lagos State, with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo absent in all of them.

It was observed that Osinbajo failed to attend any of Tinubu’s presidential campaign rallies across the country which might not be connected to their differences towards the APC presidential primaries in 2022.

It was observed that Osinbajo endured a cold relationship with Tinubu during the APC presidential primaries in 2022. Some supporters of the former governor believed the Vice President should have backed his political godfather.

Osinbajo was even tagged a betrayer and traitor by Tinubu’s followers during the APC primaries for daring to stand against the former Governor of Lagos State.

Joe Igbokwe, the Special Adviser for Drainage and Water Resources to Governor Babajide Sanwo- Olu, was one of those who called Osinbajo a betrayer.

Osinbajo who hails from Ogun State and was the Attorney General of Lagos State during Tinubu’s tenure as governor has been absent in his former principal’s rally.

Speaking on Osinbajo’s absence, the spokesman of the Tinubu/Shettima campaign, Festus Keyamo, said the Vice President’s absence was due to Buhari’s directive.

Keyamo recalled issuing a statement where Buhari directed Osinbajo and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, to stay off APC presidential campaigns.

According to Keyamo: “There was an official statement where the president directed Osinbajo and Boss Mustapha to stay off the campaign and work while he campaigned for APC.

“We issued a statement to this effect last year.”
