Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday issued a disclaimer on a political group that is seeking and helping him to run in the 2019 presidential election.
The group said it launched a website to create awareness for the vice president because “he is the right ruler for Nigeria.”
It listed its operational base as Belfast, Northern Ireland, with an obviously fictitious phone number.
Yet the group did not claim any links to Mr. Osinbajo. In fact, it put up a screaming disclaimer on its page that its activities were unconnected to the VP.
“Note that Osinbajo did not endorse this volunteer group. We have never met him. We are strong believers in the fact that he is the right ruler for Nigeria and must create a peoples volunteer base for him,” the group stated on its website.
Please disregard this website created by faceless people for mischievous purposes. It has absolutely nothing to do with the Vice President pic.twitter.com/1Q3kMRiRBx
