“The president is possibly the most popular Nigerian politician that we ever had in generations. He is possibly the only person, who can go into a place or somewhere without bossing people to gather and they will come and listen to him speak.
“We need that level of credibility to be able to solve problems in our country. And I think because of his level of credibility, despite everything, he is still the only one that can call everyone, and even people, who do not necessarily agree with him know that he is a man of his words.”
Promote the message of one country
Meanwhile, Osinbajo had expressed optimism that Nigeria would overcome its present challenges.
Osinbajo stated this on Saturday during an interactive session with top officials of Nigeria’s High Commission in the United Kingdom, held at the Abuja House residence of the High Commissioner in London.
Laolu Akande, VP Osinbajo's spokesman quoted his principal as saying: “If you look at all of us sitting here, we represent all the geo-political zones. This is the Nigeria that will succeed, anything else doesn’t make sense.”
He said citizens at home and in the diaspora should promote the message of one country, noting that: “Anybody who looks at how Nigeria operates will recognize that we are better off in this system, and that is the truth.”
