If given opportunity to be President, I’ll serve with all my heart, says Osinbajo
• Meets APC delegates in Taraba, Adamawa
• Lamido prays for success of VP’s aspiration
There is no greater privilege than having opportunity to give one’s best in service of the country, contributing to society and making life better for the people, said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Osinbajo stated this, yesterday, during his visits to Taraba and Adamawa States, in continuation of his engagements with stakeholders and delegates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
He was received in both states by Governors Darius Ishaku (Taraba) and Umaru Fintiri (Adamawa) as well as senior state government officials and excited residents.
He also visited the Lamido Adamawa’s palace.
At the palace, Osinbajo said: “My reason for aspiring for the office of President of Nigeria is to serve the Nigerian people. I have no other reason or objective except to serve.
After one has been in office as Vice President for seven years, I know that God did not give me that opportunity so that I would seat down somewhere and write the history of my service as Vice President.
“It is for the purpose of serving the people, and that is why I am so determined that if God gives me the opportunity to serve, the Nigerian people would realise indeed they have done the right thing by putting me in office because I would serve the country with everything, with all my heart and commitment.”
The Vice President was received at the palace by His Royal Highness, Muhammadu Mustapha, who said: “I hope your coming will add more light to Adamawa because you are the Jagaba of Adamawa. I hope you succeed in your efforts to become the President of this country.”
Also at the palace, Fintiri welcomed Osinbajo to the state, adding: “We pray that God will answer your heart’s desires. I also hope that the APC delegates will see the reason to put a square peg in a square hole. I welcome you to Adamawa and I wish you the best of luck.”
