Nigeria Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has called his wife, Dolapo Osinbajo “my most potent weapon” as he prepares to hand over the baton to incoming Vice-president Kashim Shettima.
Osinbajo stated this in Abuja on Friday, May 26, at a valedictory dinner organized in his honour by his staff.
He explained that his desire to make Nigeria better in the last eight years, was the reason he specifically hired people with Nigeria’s interest at heart.
“I’m honoured to have worked with such incredible people; everyone put in exceptional hard work. I personally interviewed most of you that worked with me. I wanted people who had a heart for this country, a genuine love and concern about the progress of this nation. Eight years have gone by very quickly, I must say.
Here we are today a few days to the inauguration. There are many great experiences, great things that have happened and I’m glad we’ve come this far.”
He praised the selfless service of his Police and Security Details, civil servants, his Chief of Staff, Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, and Special Assistants among others.
Osibanjo also recalled how God saved him and 11 others with him from the helicopter crash on February 2, 2019, in Kogi State.
He also recalled a similar chopper forced landing in Gwagwalada in June 2018.
