Osinbajo said he was without any other appointment after serving as the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice in Lagos State in 2003.
This was contained in a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice-President, Laolu Akande on Thursday.
He said, “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.”
