2023: APC may not get a lot of votes without Buhari on ballot paper – Osinbajo

The Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has disclosed that All Progressives Congress, APC may not poll many votes in 2023 as they did in the 2015 and 2019 elections, because President Muhammadu Buhari will not be on the ballot.

According to Osinbajo, the bulk of votes APC got during the polls was attracted by Buhari’s personality.

The vice president also urged the youth arm of the party to do their best in building a stronger membership base from the grassroots.

He disclosed this when he received a delegation of the APC National Youth Lobby Group, at the Presidential Villa to present the report of the party’s Youth Conference in June this year.

In a statement signed by Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, Osinbajo said, “this lobby group will need to deal with the issue of inclusion at the grassroots first.”

 “Today, the APC can win elections, why not, we have a very popular President who can control significant votes, we have partners everywhere.” He said.

“Whereas, in the coming years, when we do not have such a political leader who is as popular as the President, you are going to need to do the hard work. We can’t assume that the votes will all come in.” He added.
