A support group within the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, the Progressive Consolidation Group PCG has dismissed speculations that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo may have opted out of the 2023 presidential race, saying the law professor has yet to accede to the massive clamour to join the race let alone opting out.

The group also lauded Mr Osinbajo for staying focused on delivering his mandate, saying his “decidedly non-desperate disposition towards the 2023 presidential race has further energized his support base nationwide” and made him more fitting for that office.

Dismissing speculations that the Vice President may have attended a meeting where he renounced his 2023 bid to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, the PCG emphasized that “such event only happened in the fertile imagination of mischievous persons”, adding that Osinbajo is yet to even accede to citizen-based calls to contest.
