Why Osinbajo Didn’t Attend APC Caucus Meeting — Aide


Former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s spokesperson Laolu Akande provided an explanation for his principal’s absence from the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus meeting.
Osinbajo was unable to attend the ceremony on Wednesday, according to a statement from Akande, since he was away from Nigeria for certain long-term commitments.
“In a letter of apology for his absence addressed to the Acting Chairman of the party (Abubakar Kyari), the former VP explained that he was already abroad for engagements to which he had long been committed, when he received the invitation to the meeting,” the statement partially said.

“In actuality, he had canceled a few of his appointments abroad so that he could attend the two caucus meetings of the party that had been originally arranged but had to be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances.

“He expressed his commitment to the Party and his availability for upcoming meetings and activities of the party while wishing the party fruitful deliberations.”

From May 2015 to May 2023, Osinbajo served as Vice President of Nigeria under the rule of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

In June 2022, the law professor ran for president of the APC but lost to Bola Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos State.

It’s interesting to note that Osinbajo served as Lagos’ attorney general and commissioner of justice from 1999 to 2007, while Tinubu was the city’s governor.

The APC primary clearly put Tinubu and Osinbajo’s relationship to the test, but following the primary, the two leaders quickly patched things up and appeared to be having a good time.
