The Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 presidential election, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo,has started campaigns on a novel note as he joined commuters inside Lagos popular transit buses, BRT to canvass for votes on Thursday.
Osinbajo told the passengers that the country needed a man of integrity in the mold of the APC Presidential candidate who can end corruption in the country.
The APC VP candidate who joined passengers in the BRT bus from the Tafawa Balewa Square to Barracks area of Lagos, urged Nigerians to vote for Buhari, saying the former military Head of State is the only one that can curb corruption in the country. He said he would utilize “unusual opportunities to reach out to Nigerians on the need to vote out the PDP.” Osinbajo said:
“Every Nigerian knows that Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari is a no-nonsense person. He is going to make changes that would turn Nigeria around for the better. Remember that the APC is the party of change. Collect your PVC and ensure that you vote for the APC.
The only way to make an omelet is to break an egg. You have to do something and I think that all of us, whatever it is that we are involved in must be interested in making a difference in this country. This country needs help desperately. Considering the economy and the security challenges, everyone of us must be involved in trying to get a change.”
Responding to a question from one parsenger on whether Buhari was sponsoring Boko Haram, Osinbajo dismissed the allegations as “pure propaganda.” He noted that if Buhari was sponsoring the Boko Haram sect, they would not have attempted to kill him.
