Osinbajo was all over the place to ensure nothing went amiss, Buhari tells Governors

President Muhammadu Buhari and state governors met on Friday and took turns to heap praises on Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo for running the country well during the President’s medical vacation in London.

The President said Osinbajo was “all over the place” to ensure that nothing went amiss.

Buhari also took a swipe at the #ResumeorResign protesters who gathered in front of Abuja House in London demanding his return home, expressing hope that they were not stuck in London after the protest.

He said of the Vice President: “His effort is commendable. He used his intellect to run all over the place. I was seeing him 24 hours on NTA.

“I congratulate him. I allowed him to come and see me to thank him personally for what he has done.”

Buhari also thanked the governors “very much for the national approach in your leadership.”

“I had so much time to watch NTA. I heard so much about the states.

“I am very pleased with the states, you are all doing your best and you are lucky.

“Your best is proving to be good enough on agriculture and solid minerals. You are succeeding in agriculture because I think people cannot afford foreign food.”

He pleaded with the governors to continue to join hands with him to accelerate the development of the country.

He said he meant well for the nation and pledged to discharge his duties to all Nigerians without bias.

He promised to address security and economic challenges facing the nation within the shortest time possible. Buhari shook hands with each of the 35 governors at the session.

“I want you to join hands together to take this country to greater heights.
“I mean well for the country. I want Nigerians to live as a united and lovable people.”

The President was also grateful to Nigerians for praying for him irrespective of religion or ethnicity. He said their love for him has raised his morale.

“My morale has been raised greatly by the love shown to me and the security of the country,” he stated.

Conspicuously missing at the meeting was Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose.
