Yemi Osinbajo who spoke at the palace of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi 111, stated that voting for Buhari will make Yorubas produce President in 2023.
Osinbajo who stated that Buhari is no doubt a man who stands by his words, pleaded that Yorubas should work for the success of President Buhari in 2019, as it will take a very long time for any Yoruba man to get the Presidency if Buhari failed to return in 2019.
The Vice President who maintained that Buhari has performed well and deserved another term in the office, added that Buhari since he came to power in 2015 had proved to be a man who has zero tolerance for corruption.
Osinbajo who described corruption as one of the major problems in Nigeria, told those present that he was in the palace to pay homage to the monarch and drink from his wealth of his experience and knowledge.
“It is good to pay homage to the palace. I greet you the king, I greet the Alaafin of Oyo and other traditional rulers here present. Anytime I come to the Kabiesi either here in Abuja, I say it is home coming.
“The 2019 general elections is our own. We are not looking at the 2019 but 2023. If we get it in 2019, Yoruba will get it in 2023.
Because if we don’t get it in 2019, we may not get it in 2023 and it may take a very long time to get it. We need to look at tomorrow and not because of today. What we are doing now is for tomorrow and not for today”.
“What I know about Buhari is that he is an honest man. What he say he will do, he will do it”.
“Now, they are regrouping. These are the people that have ruled for 16 years and they say they want to come back again. They are corrupt. Though, it is still difficult because no man or woman can build a house without a foundation”.
