Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has described the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, as a partner in progress, during the VP’s visit to Sultan’s palace in Sokoto Monday night.

Prof Osinbajo visited Sokoto State in continuation of his tour of states to meet with stakeholders and delegates of the All Progressive Congress ahead of the party’s presidential primary election holding

The Sultan lauding Prof Osinbajo during the Vice President’s courtesy visit to him in his palace, said, “We see you as a partner in progress and wish you will be able to convince your delegates that you are the best presidential material.

Prof Osinbajo, an All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential aspirant in the 2023 election, thankful for the warm reception, called for understanding and tolerance among Nigerians.

He said Nigeria’s strength lies in its unity and diversity, noting that if different faiths and ethnic nationalities would work together with the nation’s interest, the country would be taken to greater heights.

He explained that “the country must stay united because our unity is the basis of our success and prosperity. If we are not united, our country will be wasted.”

Osinbajo described the challenges as surmountable, and that is what governments are working on everyday.

Responding, Abubakar prayed for the success of the vice president and asked Allah to guide him through the process.

In an interview with newsmen after an interactive meeting with APC stakeholders, Osinbajo said if elected as President, he would ensure that the programmes, policies and projects of President Muhammadu Buhari will be sustained.

According to him, his experience as Nigeria’s Vice President in the last seven years under President Buhari has placed him in a high pedestal to lead the country from 2023.

”I met privately with the stakeholders, mostly delegates of the APC, and we had very good interactions.

”We discussed a wide range of issues, including economy, security, education and health care and others,” Osinbajo said.
