South West delegates have welcomed Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo with hostility as he arrived at the Eagle Square, Abuja, the venue of the Special Convention of the All-Progressives Congress (APC).
Osinbajo, who is one of the contenders for the presidential ticket of the APC, arrived at the convention ground at 7.25 p.m. accompanied by the director-general of his campaign, Kabiru Gaya, and the Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun.
However, as he made his way to the state box, delegates from his home South-west region noticed his arrival, and chants of “betrayer’ ‘” thief” and other derogatory slogans rose from their pavilions.
The vice president had attempted to come out of his vehicle to greet the delegates, but the hostel environment forced him to go back.
However, voices of support for him rose from among his supporters as the vice president moved to the State Box to await the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari.
