The President was said to have blessed the aspiration of his deputy but did not make a  commitment.

The Cornet gathered that Osinbajo might  make his intention known to Nigerians as early as Monday or during the week.

Meanwhile, a proposed meeting between Osinbajo and party chairmen on Sunday was abruptly cancelled. No reason was given for the cancellation.

But, it is being speculated that Vice President Osinbajo had planned to make his presidential bid known to the party chairmen.

With Osinbajo joining the fray, he definitely has Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to contend with for the party’s presidential ticket.

Other presidential aspirants from the APC, who have made their intention known, are Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi and Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.

The Cornet also learned others who nurse similar ambition but yet to declare so include Ekiti Governor Kayode Fayemi, Central Bank of Nigeria governor Godwin Emefiele, Transportation minister Rotimi Amaechi, and Minister of Labour and Productivity Chris Ngige.
