Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says Nigeria has the kind of president it needs at this time. He said this when he received Pastor W. F. Kumuyi, the General Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Church, who paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Friday.

Osinbajo described President Muhammadu Buhari as “honest, straightforward and operating from a genuine heart.”

According to Osinbajo, although some people say Buhari is strict because of his forthrightness, “he is the kind of leader we need now, a president who will not cut deals and who is only interested in moving Nigeria forward.

“We are very happy that we have a President who is honest, a President who is straight forward, a President who is operating from the genuineness of his heart, this is the kind of leader that we need now.”

Osinbajo told the delegation that he and the President worked well together.

While acknowledging the economic situation in the country, the VP noted that the current administration did not create the conditions, “but we are here at this time.

“The reason (we are here at this time,) is known to the Lord Himself; every day I wake up knowing there is a cause for being here and it is to move the country forward.”

On the ongoing Ogoni clean-up and the situation in Niger Delta, Osinbajo said “the clean-up of Ogoni is very important, the situation is very bad.

“I have been in the area a few times, but we need peace in the area to be able to carry on with the clean-up.”

He also said the clean-up would take decades but with phased implementation, the people could gradually return to fishing and farming.

On power sector, Osinbajo said by February, the country achieved 5,000mw of electricity for the first time in history, and then the militants’ attacks on pipelines made things go bad.

According to him, militancy is not only retarding electricity, but also cutting the oil revenues of the nation and that government is working diligently on effective solutions to the challenges.

Earlier, Kumuyi said he was in Abuja for a crusade and thought it good to pay a visit to the vice-president.

He thanked God for the progress made so far by the administration, adding that “God will fulfill the purpose for which He brought you at a time like this.”

While inviting the Osinbajo to the crusade, Kumuyi pledged his contributions and prayers for the Buhari administration, and also for the progress of the country. (NAN)
