The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has lauded the emergence of Prof. Yemi Osibajo (SAN) as the Vice Presidential Candidate of the party in the coming February 2015 Presidential Election. The party said yesterday night that “the choice is like putting a round peg in a round hole and complements the stellar Presidential Candidate of APC, Gen. Muhamadu Buhari (rtd).”

Lagos APC in a release signed by its Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe, said that “with the emergence of Prof. Osibajo, the change train that will end the harrowing PDP reign of corruption, ineptitude and corruption is now complete.” The party charged all Nigerians “to work to ensure that the 2015 elections herald the needed change Nigerians have been yearning for by rallying round the Buhari/Osibajo ticket.”

According to Lagos APC, “Coming exactly a week after the completion of the spectacular APC presidential primaries in Lagos, the choice of Osibajo reflects the demand of Nigerians for a credible, untainted, committed and competent team that will be trusted to end the reign of mediocrity and corruption that has wrecked Nigeria for sixteen horrible years. The choice itself, and the general acceptance, finally puts a seal on those that have desperately been sowing expectations of crisis and division in APC, as a needed tonic for their continued stay in power.  Once again, their permutation and evil wishes failed fatally while they are hit by unending crisis and schism arising from their deep seated selfish interests while the APC continues to grow from strength to strength to the glory of the badly ruined Nigerian state.

“Prof. Osibajo is a deep intellectual, a revered Christian pastor, a revered professor of law, a redoubtable lawyer and a technocrat who complements the stellar records of General Buhari. He will be  coming into governance with the wealth of experience he had gathered in the Public Service as former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Lagos, who did creditably well in reforming the justice system in Lagos, to make it a pace setter in judicial dispensation in Nigeria today. His commitment to the return of Nigeria to the paths of legality, sanity and judicial is legendary and the country will benefit from this.

“While we express our joy and those of other Nigerians in this excellent choice, we urge Nigerians, who have been yearning for change, to start working for that change, as this great opportunity has presented itself. We urge Nigerians to start the process of mobilising the abused, cheated, victimised Nigerians for the great change of 2015 which will rescue Nigeria from the clutches of bad governance, deeply entrenched corruption and cluelessness that have combined to wreck a well endowed country today.

“We congratulate Prof. Osibajo, our great party and our country on this wonderful masterstroke and present the Buhari/Osibajo ticket as the panacea for Nigeria’s wobbling state from 2015.”
