Spokesman for the Yemi Osinbajo Campaign Organisation, Mr Richard Akinnola, has congratulated Bola Tinubu, former Lagos governor, as he coasts to victory at the ongoing presidential primary election of the All Progressives Congress.
From the results announced so far at the Eagle Square, Abuja, venue for the exercise, Tinubu is leading with 1,013 votes, while Osinbajo came distant third with 155 votes out of the 2,203 total accredited delegates.
Taking to his Facebook page Wednesday morning, as the results continue to trickle in, Osinbajo’s Campaign spokesman said he does not regret working for the vice president.
Akinola wrote: “Congratulations, Asiwaju Tinubu, the presumed winner of the primaries.
In any contest, there must be a winner. However, I’m very proud of my choice of support in the person of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
“I have no iota of regret over my support for him. It was a privilege to play a pivotal role for him during the process. I would gladly do it over and over again. It’s a matter of conviction.
“And for all our supporters and other volunteers who worked assiduously, day and night on the PYO project, God bless you all. I’m so proud of all of you.
“As l often say, God rules in the affairs of men and He has a purpose for what just happened.
“Understandably, many of you are dispirited and downcast but do not let your heart be troubled. There must be a reason God allowed this. It may not be manifest to us now but later as He is all knowing.
