Osinbajo Confesses

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has made a shocking revelation… “I strongly believe that the future of our party depends on people who are committed to seeing that we build a party that is based on ideals that you and I think are important. As a young person, I belonged to several pressure groups”

“I graduated at the age of 21. And when I graduated, I began to participate in various pressure groups, human rights organisations, and anti-corruption, civil society groups of every kind. When political parties started forming, we could not aspire, but we remained involved. My first involvement in government was when I was appointed as Attorney General in Lagos State.”

“For seven years — after serving as Lagos Attorney-General — I was part of the party, I did not have a board appointment or anything, but I kept working for the party. I kept working for the party as a lawyer.”

“Most of those cases we were not paid a dime. But we went from place to place. Sometimes, we didn’t even have a place to stay when we went to court the next morning. So, there is a measure of paying the price, it depends on how serious or committed we are to some of the things we say we are committed to.”
