Vice president Yemi Osinbajo has announced his intention to run for the presidency
This came after months of speculations about his plans.
He made the declaration via his Twitter handle early Monday morning, bypassing any fanfare and scenes like many others.
When in the past months Osinbajo started featuring prominently at stste functions in and outside Nigeria representing the president, many started suspecting it was the build up move.
Even within Nigeria, his several visits to states had been seen also as the groundwork for this intention.
The tweet at 7:01 am read: “I am today, with utmost humility formally declaring my intention to run for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the platform of APC.”
