Buhari must win in 2019… – Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday, restated that the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election would guarantee the South-West a shot at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in 2023.

Osinbajo, who went on a house-to-house campaign in Oyo-Alaafin and held a 45-minute closed-door meeting with the Alaafin, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, said the 2019 presidential election mattered to the Yoruba people of the South-West because the region had a larger interest in 2023.

The vice president was accompanied to Oyo by Governor Abiola Ajimobi; the APC governorship candidate in the state, Chief Bayo Adelabu; a former Senate Leader and the APC senatorial candidate for Oyo Central Senatorial District, Senator Teslim Folarin, among others.

Osinbajo eulogised Oba Adeyemi for his wisdom, which, he said, was secon to none in the South-West.

He said, “My visit to Kabiyesi today is a homecoming. I have never seen an Oba with the political sagacity like the Alaafin. I know this is God-given because no university teaches that.

“Kabiyesi is a man of integrity; that’s why we are following and consulting him. Everybody here will agree with me that being a Yoruba leader is not easy. That’s why leaders like Senator Ahmed Tinubu consult him in our country.

“Yoruba have a lot to contribute to Nigeria for the 2019 elections. It is for us Yoruba; if you understand, it is for us.  We are not looking at 2019, but 2023. If we don’t get it now, it may take some time again.

“We have to look forward to that; that is before us. Though there could be some challenges, but what I know about President Muhammadu Buhari is that he is an honest man. If he says he will do something, he will do it.

“If you love Nigeria, you will vote for Buhari. Corruption is the reason Nigeria is not growing, a reason why they don’t want Buhari. They are out again; they are looters. Don’t allow them.”

Osinbajo added that what the Buhari/Osinbajo presidency had been doing was to build a solid foundation for Nigeria’s actual development.

“If you want to build, you need a solid foundation first. What we are building will be good to position Nigeria for eventual development,” he added.
