Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, has warned his supporters not to insult National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as they both jostle for the party’s presidential ticket ahead of 2023 general election.
Osinbajo served as Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Lagos during Tinubu’s reign as governor.
The VP and ex-governor are both seeking to clinch the APC 2023 presidential ticket, which has elicited exchanges between their supporters.
Some supporters of Tinubu had accused Osinbajo of being an ingrate for not supporting the former’s presidential quest despite what the APC leader did for him politically.
Vanguard reports that sources close to the VP, said Osinbajo is against any of his supporters abusing Tinubu over their ambition.
He warned: “Even if his supporters abuse my mother, don’t retaliate. On no account must he be insulted or denigrated.”
