‘Buhari Treats Me Like A Son’ – Osinbajo


Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, on Thurday, gave some glimpses into the personal and official relationships he has shared with President Muhammadu Buhari.

On a visit to Katsina to launch the state’s Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises Clinic, Prof. Osinbajo disclosed that ” the President has been treating me as a brother. In fact the President has taken me as a son in the way he treats me.”

The Acting President noted that going by the amount of responsibilities President Buhari has given him, it shows that he seriously believes that we can live as brothers in this country.
“He seriously believes in the unity of Nigeria. I pray the Lord will preserve our President to continue to lead us just as the nation has voted him to do.”

The Acting President who earlier paid a visit to the Emir of Katsina, Dr. Abdulmumini Kabir Usman, also spoke about his close relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari at the palace reception.

“One of the reasons why I feel very much at home in Katsina State is because this is the State of our President, President Muhammadu Buhari, who has taken me more like a brother; in fact sometimes more like a son than a Vice President.”

He commended the Government and people of Katsina State for being a role model in terms of peaceful co-existence of all ethnic tribes and religions in the State.

Osinbajo stated that President Muhammadu Buhari knows Nigeria’s capacity is limitless in terms of what we can produce.

“When he gave the 2017 budget speech in December 2016, the President said the central vision of our government is to grow everything that we would eat and to make everything we would use.”
