The VP leadership once again received commendations on Friday, November 12, 2021 at the 85th birthday celebration of Attah Ekid Afid and Paramount Ruler of the Eket local government area in Akwa Ibom state.
The royal father, His Majesty Obong ECD Abia, described prof. Osinbajo as the best vice president Nigeria has ever had, stating that it is the wish of many Nigerians beyond the party line that succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
“The representative of the vice president, Senator Baba Femi Ojudu. I am happy that you are here. I hope you’ll come back and tell the Vice President how much we love him, how much we love him. It is no exaggeration to say that he is the best vice president we have ever had in this country. Many Nigerians in both the PDP and the APC would like him to succeed his current boss. This is how much Nigerians trust him. They trust him, ”he said.
This isn’t the first time a monarch will cheer Osinabjo.
During a courtesy visit to the Presidential Villa in April 2021, the Kingdom of Uke’s Yakanaje in Nasarawa State, His Royal Majesty Alhaji (Dr.) Ahmed Abdullahi Hassan praised Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for his ability to bring people of different ethnic groups in the country together.
He said that in his reign in the Karu local government area, “we are emulating your efforts, bringing together the ethnic groups in Nigeria as one”.
In June of this year, the Oniru of Iruland, His Royal Majesty, Oba Abdulwasiu Omogbolahan Lawal, on the occasion of the first anniversary of the monarch’s coronation, said that the leadership of the Vice President is an example to follow for other leaders in the whole country, noting that “you are a leader whose direction we will continue to follow”.
Also in November 2019, the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, at the general assembly of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, praised prof. Yemi Osinbajo for his leadership style, which he called divine.
