Nigeria needs an honest man like Buhari – Osinbajo tells Kumuyi

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has stated that Nigeria needs an honest and straightforward man like President Muhammadu Buhari.

He spoke during a courtesy visit by a delegation from the Deeper Christian Life Church, led by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He stressed that Buhari is a President who will not cut deals but is only interested in moving Nigeria forward.

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo was quoted as saying: “We are very happy that we have a President who is honest, a President who is straight forward, a President who is operating from the genuineness of his heart, this is the kind of leader that we need now.”

He also said that he had worked together very well with the President.

Acknowledging the current economic situation in the country, the Vice President said that the current administration did not create the problems.

He said: “The reason (we are here at this time,) is known to the Lord Himself. Everyday I wake up knowing there is a cause for being here and it is to move the country forward.”

Osinbajo told Pastor William Kumuyi that the clean-up of Ogoni and the Niger Delta was very important.

He said: “The situation is very bad, I have been in the area a few times, but we need peace in the area to be able to carry on with the clean-up exercise.”

On the power sector, he noted that by February this year, the country was doing 5000MW of electricity for the first time in history, and that the militants’ attacks on the pipelines have made things bad not only regarding electricity, but also cutting the oil revenues of the nation.

He was clear that God had a purpose for choosing the President and himself to serve at this time, saying “this is the doing of the Lord.”

Speaking earlier, Pastor Kumuyi said he was in the Federal Capital Territory for a crusade and thought to pay a visit to the Vice President.

He thanked God for the progress made so far by the administration, stressing that “God will fulfill the purpose for which He brought you at a time like this.”
