The President General of Yoruba Community Council in Northern Nigeria, Alhaji Abdulganiyu I. Oguntoyimbo, has said no Yoruba man is praying that Yemi Osinbajo succeed Muhammadu Buhari as President.
Speaking during a prayer session for Buhari who just returned from medical vacation from London in Abuja, Oguntoyimbo said nobody from the South West was interested in dragging leadership role with Buhari.
According to council head, “There is no Yoruba man that is praying for Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to succeed Buhari. The relationship between the two of them is very cordial.
“As a matter of fact, Yoruba’s relationship with Buhari administration is cordial. We support him totally and if we support anybody we don’t go back.
“We are with Buhari yesterday, today, tomorrow and always. We believe that what he is doing is not just for today but for tomorrow.”
Recall that before embarking on his medical vacation in London, Buhari transferred powers to Osinbajo. Osinbajo acted in Buhari’s capacity in that duration.
While acting, Osinbajo handled well the affair of the country as economy was seen to improve; He received accolades from Nigerians as a result.
