Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday said Nigerians have a lot to be thankful for by having Muhammadu Buhari as their president, saying the Nigerian leader has been doing the country a great favour by being honest and incorruptible.
“We are very fortunate that God gave us a leader like President Muhammadu Buhari at the time we are facing,” Mr Osinbajo said while meeting with a group of entertainers from the northern region at the State House. “And the reason why I say so is because, you see, if we don’t have a steady hand, matured person who understands a lot of things and who is respected by the people, there will be more chaos and we won’t even know where this will end.”
“We must continue to thank God that at least we have a leader who is considered honest all across the country, everybody knows that he’s a man of his words, no matter where you are in the country, you know that he’s a man of his words, you know he’s honest and you know he is not stealing the resources of the country,” the vice president added.
Laolu Akande, a spokesman for the vice president who released transcripts of the meeting, said it was attended by several top-rated Kannywood personalities led by Adamu Dauda Rarara.
“We are still fighting insurgency, Boko Haram insurgency and ISWAP, then we have banditry here and there in the North-West and things like that. All of these have occurrences in the life of a nation. Every nation runs into trouble, but it is the government at the time that must take the responsibility,” Mr Osinbajo further stated
