Osinbajo served others; time for him to rule Nigeria: Alake
The Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, says Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has paid his dues and deserves to be elected Nigeria’s president in 2023.
Mr Gbadebo spoke on Tuesday when he hosted the vice president, who was on a courtesy visit.
Mr Osinbajo, accompanied by Governor Dapo Abiodun, was in Ogun as part of his consultations with stakeholders ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The traditional ruler said Mr Osinbajo creditably acquitted himself in service to the nation and was eminently qualified to be the next president.
“Every president from this part of the country that has passed through here has succeeded in becoming the president. Every time the vice president has passed here and gone for something competitive, he has always won; this will not be an exception,” noted the Egba monarch.
He added, “By the grace of God, our vice president has paid his dues; he has gone through serving others and has been winning colours all the way. He had the same subjects in high school like I had and won laurels.”
Mr Gbadebo also mentioned that in the university, through research work and legal practice, Mr Osinbajo had “been most outstanding.”
“Why should we not ask you for just one more position to the glory of God, and for the benefit of all Nigerians, and you will say ‘no’? Certainly, not here,” the traditional ruler stated.
He prayed that Mr Osinbajo’s next visit to the palace would be a thank-you’ visit after his victory in the 2023 presidential election.
