No, Muhammadu Buhari has not endorsed Yemi Osinbajo to take over in 2023. He was only wishing him a happy birthday.
The Nigerian vice president clocked 64 today and his boss, President Buhari, had words of praise.
“Happy 64th Birthday to Professor Yemi Osinbajo, a reliable and dedicated deputy who is not only admirably competent, but also exudes confidence and passion in the performance of his job; a cool-headed gentleman who puts the interest of Nigeria above other narrow considerations,” Buhari said on Monday.
“Vice President Osinbajo is an incredibly patient politician who demonstrates remarkable intellectual and mental energy in the discharge of his duties.
“I’m proud to have selected him as my running mate, and he has given a good account of himself since our journey began in 2015.
“I wish him many more prosperous years and Almighty God’s continued guidance and blessings,” the president said.
