Osinbajo says he has never thought about contesting for the position of Nigeria's president.
Osinbajo stated this on Monday, October 9, 2017, at the Financial Times Africa Summit in London.
There have been unconfirmed reports that President Muhammadu Buhari might not seek reelection for health reasons.
Some of the talks have also been about the possibility of Osinbajo contesting in the 2019 elections.
But when asked about that possibility, the Vice President said, “None of that is on the cards,” according to Reuters.
Similarly, the Presidency has disowned a group which pits Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo against President Muhammadu Buhari as presidential candidate in the 2019 election.
The volunteer group, called 'Osinbajo Volunteers', says it believes Osinbajo should be the next President of Nigeria but admits that the Vice-President did not endorse its campaign.
