The reports which emerged on Sunday claims that the vice president had set up the office at No. 15b, Buchanan Crescent, off Aminu Kano, near Emab Plaza Wuse 2, Abuja.

In response to the report the Office of the vice president through the the Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), has denied the the report on Sunday and has issued a statement in respect to it which reads:
“There has again been a flurry of activities, such as the release of campaign-style promotional videos, banners in the Social Media and even the deployment of political posters in some parts of the country, including the FCT and Kano, insinuating that the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has joined the 2023 Presidential Race.
“The Office of the Vice President wishes to reiterate a statement on the same subject, made earlier in May this this year.
“The Office of the Vice President is not in any way connected with the distribution and deployment of any 2023 political posters whether on the streets or in online videos, banners, and the like on the Social Media.
