According to him “Working under President Muhammadu Buhari in the last seven years has greatly exposed me to series of security and economic challenges facing the country which I am in a better position to address due to exposure and opportunities given to me by the President.”

“Being the Vice President of Nigeria in the last few years was a great opportunity that placed me in the front burner against other aspirants contesting for the presidency. As soon as I get to the office God willing in May 2023 I would hit the ground running for a more prosperous Nigeria,” he said.

The Vice President lauded the fatherly role of the Emir and sought his support for his aspiration.

Osinbajo said that his respect and regard for the Emir and the Emirate informed his visit to the palace.
