I am at home in Katsina because Buhari treats me like a son, says Osinbajo

I am at home in Katsina because Buhari treats me like a son, says Osinbajo

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

On a visit to Buhari’s home state of Katsina to launch the a Micro, Small and Medium Scale  Enterprises Clinic, Osinbajo revealed the nature of relationship existing between him and Buhari.

“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.

“Going by the amount of responsibilities President Buhari has given me, 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, Abdulmumini Kabir Usman, also spoke about his close relationship with President Buhari at the palace reception.

“One of the reasons why i feel very much at home in Katsina is because this is the state of our President 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 for being a role model in terms of peaceful co-existence of all ethnic tribes and religions in the state.

Osinbajo stated that 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.”

At the launch of the Katsina State’s MSMES Clinic, Osinbajo averred that the federal government’s newly launched Economic Recovery & Growth Plan (EGRP) places high premium on the nation’s capacity to grow it’s export potentials rather than continue on the unsustainable path of total dependence on import.

He added that the focus of the Plan is to develop “the capacity of Nigerians to do everything that we need internally, to become a net exporter of the various things that we are importing today.”
