The war of attrition between two foremost politicians from the south west Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo got messier on Sunday with Osinbajo group declaration that Asiwaju should embraced the fact that Nigeria is not for sale.
Pro Osinbajo support group who rose from a two day marathon meeting at the ancient city of Kano, similarly dissociated itself from any agreement from any secret quarter that might secretly favour Tinubu for the plum job in 2023.
Karu Simon Elisha who spoke onbehalf of the group said “On the issue of negotiation, it could a previous practice but presently Nigeria is not for sale”
The fiery federal Mp declared “We say no to any agreement prior to this generation. This generation must decide who lead them and not those who decide their future behind them.”.
He therefore called on “Prof Osinbajo to yield our call to vie for the president. We know his competence and capability and we are waiting for him to decide.”
