In fulfilment of the promise he made during the 2019 electioneering campaigns, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, late Friday afternoon, paid a visit to the family of Baba Alagazhin Gazazhin, a 106-year old Gbagyi indigene resident in Kubwa, a town in Bwari Area Council of the FCT.
The visit is also a continuation of the Family Chats, an initiative of the Vice President, aimed at interacting with the grassroots in their homes and communities.
On January 17, 2019, Prof. Osinbajo, in the course of the Family Chats, visited Kubwa town and met Baba Gazazhin at Kukwaba community, assuring him of more government support to the community and promised to return to the community on a thank you visit after the elections.
During the visit of January 17, the Vice President urged the people to remain steadfast with the Buhari government, noting that “the Buhari government is for the people.”
In his interaction with Baba Gazazhin at Friday’s visit, the Vice President thanked the Gazazhins and members of the community for their support and prayers during the 2019 elections, inquiring about Baba and his community’s welfare. He also assured Baba of government’s continued support for the community.
Speaking through an interpreter, Baba Gazazhin reminded the Vice President of how he had predicted that President Buhari and he (Prof. Osinbajo) would emerge victorious at the polls.
According to Baba, “Remember, I did say you and the President will win and this came to pass.”
The visibly elated centenarian also informed the Vice President of some of the basic needs of the community, especially issues affecting the youths.
Residents of Kukwaba community including the young and old came out in large numbers to welcome and take photographs with the Vice President, as he walked the streets of Kukwaba, shortly after interacting with his host,
