Nigeria’s Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has assured of the party’s victory at the 2023 polls, as he led the National Assembly caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to meet with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, at his official resident, Aguda House, in Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
The Tuesday night meeting was the breaking of Ramadan fast session hosted by Vice President Osinbajo for the Senate caucus of the 9th Assembly.
Lawan, who addressed the media at the State House, said the Senate is working hard to ensure the party retains power in 2023, while he said his team of Senators wished the Vice President well in his presidential aspirations, after he briefed the Senate APC caucus about his intention to run for the office of the President in 2023.
VP Osinbajo, had, in a video posted online on Monday, declared his intention to run in the 2023 presidential election.
“We had dinner with the Vice President to break the fast and thereafter, we had a brief interaction on our government and the Vice President’s declaration to run for the president’s office.
“Naturally, the Vice President told us he had expressed his interest and that he needed to consult with the Senate APC caucus.
“He wanted us to hear from his mouth and that we did; and he was seeking our support in whatever way we can at the appropriate time; and we wished the vice-president good luck in this endeavour.
“Let me assure everyone that the Senate APC caucus and indeed, the National Assembly caucus of the APC will continue to work very hard for our great party the APC, to continue to provide services to Nigerians.
“We shall also work hard to ensure that by 2023, the next administration is an APC administration at the federal and states levels by the Grace of God,’’ Lawan said.
