The Oba encouraged politicians, not only the vice president, to prioritise the position of the electorate instead of using political tactics in their campaigns.

The Oba reminded Osinbajo that being a cleric if he emerges as the president, he would have a lot of work to do in order to achieve positive change in Nigeria.

Prayer offered

He said the VP is qualified for the office and prayed that electorate will favour him in the coming election.

His words:

“I welcome you on behalf of my chiefs and members of the royal family here present. I thank you for this visit and for considering fit to come here as your first point of call on this journey. We thank you very much, Mr. Vice President.
