Why Yemi Osinbajo Didn’t Attend APC Caucus Meeting — Aide

Former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, has explained his principal’s absence from the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus meeting.

In a statement, Akande stated that Osinbajo would be unable to attend the ceremony on Wednesday because he was abroad of the country on business.

“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 partly read.

“He had in fact cancelled some of his engagements abroad to be available for the two previously scheduled caucus meetings of the party which had to be postponed due to exigencies.

“While wishing the party fruitful deliberations, he expressed his commitment to the Party and his availability for future meetings and activities of the party.”

During the administration of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, Osinbajo served as Nigeria’s Vice President from May 2015 until May 2023.

The law professor ran in the APC presidential primary in June 2022 but lost to Bola Tinubu, the ex-governor of Lagos State.

Interestingly, when Tinubu was governor of Lagos from 1999 to 2007, Osinbajo served as Commissioner of Justice and Attorney General.

The APC primary clearly tested Tinubu and Osinbajo’s relationship, but the two chieftains quickly reunited and were seen publicly in a convivial mood after the primary.
