In a broadcast on Monday, Osinbajo said that he had visited practically all the local government areas in the country and knows the yearnings of Nigerians.

“Which is why today, with the utmost humility, I’m formally declaring my intention to run for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the platform of our great party, the All Progressives Congress.”
