He also visited some political office holders in the state as the presidential primary of the party, draws nearer.

The visit may not be unconnected to part of the consultation tour being embarked by Osinbajo to the party faithful across the country as the forthcoming presidential primary of the party draws closer.

The vice president, who expressed his readiness to contest the presidential election in 2023, said it would amount to an act of betrayal to the country if he failed to serve Nigeria.

He said, “Opportunity comes once in a while. It is also a privilege to serve. Our country needs service that will bring the country out of the wood.

“Nobody can be anything without the endorsement of God. I declare my intention based on the fact that I have served for over seven months as acting president. I was given very serious responsibility as an acting president.

“Now the opportunity has come, with the experience that I have, the connection and contacts that I have both locally and internationally, it will be a betrayal to the country not to accept to serve the country.

Many people are dying for the country every day. If with all that has been given to me by the grace of God, all experience, I now retire to Lagos or Ikene to go and be writing my memoir, it would be a great injustice to this country.”
