I Was A Party Loyalist Without Appointment For 7 Years - Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo wants party members to look at what they can do for the party more than than what the party can for them.
Osinbajo said on Thursday that he remained a loyalist to his political party even when he did not get any board appointment for seven years.
He said he was without any other appointment after he left office as the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice in Lagos State in 2003.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice-President, Laolu Akande, stated that Osinbajo said this Wednesday night during a meeting with young aspirants under the All Progressives Congress at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I believe that, in party politics, we must go beyond positions, whether elective or appointed, but we must be committed to something, the principles and beliefs of those who are the forebears of that party,” he said.
Osinbajo was the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice under the Alliance for Democracy of the Bola Tinubu-led government in the state.
Many of the founding members of the AD had changed to the Action Congress, and later to the Action Congress of Nigeria, which merged with other political parties to form the APC.
Osinbajo said since he left office as the AG of Lagos State, he remained a member of the party without even getting a board appointment.
