Sanusi has said that Nigeria has lost for not having Yemi Osinbajo as President.
THE PUNCH reports that the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has said Nigeria lost for not having Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as the country’s President.
Sanusi said this at a virtual book launch titled, “Osinbajo Strides: Defining Moments of an Innovative Leader,” on Monday.
The VP was one of the aspirants of the All Progressives Congress presidential primary, who some criticised for contesting against his former boss and the now President-elect, Bola Tinubu, during the party’s presidential primary.
Sanusi, who is also a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, noted that Osinbajo was one of those in the present administration ready to deliberate on developmental matters.
He said, “And I dare say, we all agree that Nigeria is worse off for not having someone like him (Osinbajo) as president, but I do hope that he will be available to serve and to advise and to put in his best for the country and continue to do.
“So, I’m sure he will, in whatever capacity he finds himself in the future, and maybe, we’ll still be lucky to have him lead us at some point or take some leadership role as a statesman.”
