Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

By Kehinde Adeoye

Nigerians on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, launched out to register their continued support and admiration for the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, saying he has offered Nigeria great service and quality representation both at home and abroad.

This is coming on the heels of the just-concluded 61st Ordinary Session of the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) held in Ghana, where Vice President Osinbajo represented President Muhammadu Buhari at the event.

Rising in support of Prof Osinbajo’s seven-year stewardship, the commentators applauding his achievements, trended the hashtag #OsinbajoNigeriasPride, and while pouring praises and accolades, they lauded him as the best Vice President in Nigeria’s history.

They highlighted many qualities that stand him out among other politicians in Nigeria, some of which they called his sterling approach to solve issues, honestly in service to the nation, and his loyalty, both to his boss and even to his office in fulfilling his constitutional roles without faltering at work.

Prof Osinbajo’s unwavering commitment and dedication to service in his capacity as the Vice President of Nigeria was generally applauded by social commentators.

Passing their comments, they said looking back at the last convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), his loss though shocking, but he still can lead Nigeria to the promised land, as to them, had the template to make Nigeria work.

References were made to others he coordinated and still coordinating, such as the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIP).

Unlike his predecessors, Osinbajo has redefined the office of Nigeria’s Vice President, all thanks to the trust between him and the President. They both have kept an outstanding working relationship that has never been seen or imagined in the past 22 years

Osinbajo matches actions with words. Whenever he speaks I feel a burst of reassuring hope and refreshing calmness. A good leader must be able to motivate and inspires his followers. My Iconic Man has all that tucked in him

“See a man who is diligent in his business, he shall stand before kings, not before mere men”
Osinbajo will be the first vice president in the history of our democracy who never joke with his work, a very hardworking leader.

Osinbajo doesn’t only have faith that a New Nigeria can be birthed, but he has built a track record of spearheading diff projects under his watch as the best VP in Nigeria’s history, many of which are bold, audacious and near-impossible tasks. #OsinbajoIsNigeriasPride
