2023: Vice-President Osinbajo alarmed by media misrepresentations


The Office of the Vice-President has alerted the public to the misrepresentations in a section of the media about the person of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN).

The Office, in a statement on Wednesday afternoon and obtained by Persecondnews, described as off-key representation of the Vice-President by those going to the media to assert opinions that run contrary to his views and person.

“Our attention has been called to certain off-key representation of the Vice President, going to the media to assert opinions that run contrary to his views and persona.

“The Vice President is focused on his job, while seeking the ticket of our great party.

“He has been a loyal, dependable and hardworking partner in delivering the progressive promise of people-centered good governance, devoid of guile, in the past seven years.

“We enjoin media houses and journalists to reach out to our office to ascertain the accreditation status of representatives of varying support groups, that have since sprung up across the country, in fervent support of the Vice President.

‘While we appreciate the spontaneous support for the Vice President and the willingness of this support to express themselves in the media, there has been various representatives that have gone to the media as aides of the VP or his representatives, who were wrongly tagged so.

“We hope the media will be circumspect in tagging these voices, and carefully vet these claims in the future,” the statement signed by Sen. Babafemi Ojudu, the Special Adviser on Political Matters to the President, said.

Restating Osinbajo’s commitment to civil discourse, the statement also said: “We are committed to civil and reasoned discourse and debates, in the next few weeks, and must avoid any kind of negativity that is not in line with the vision and temperament of the Vice President.

“We wish Nigerians all the best and appreciate the fervent support thus far for His Excellency, the Vice President.”
