Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Friday has disproved the insinuations that President Muhammadu Buhari doesn’t know how to govern.
He also disagreed with inference that selfishness is the bane of those in government, saying that the Buhari administration is doing its best for Nigerians.
Osinbajo said the efforts of the incumbent administration could have been felt more if not for the activities of those he described as “saboteurs” allegedly working against the government.
The Vice President spoke at Saint Luke’s Anglican Church, Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti State, during the burial service for Mrs. Moroluke Fakoyede, mother of the Secretary to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ola Olukoyede.
He said that Buhari inherited “a highly debased economy” from the immediate past administration of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, a situation which, he said, prevented some of the steps taken by President Buhari to manifest on the well-being of the poor Nigerians.
Osinbajo said, “I became frightened when the man of God said only those of us in powers are enjoying. This is not true. We have done our best for Nigerians.
“The concern of President Buhari, All Progressives Congress and those of us in his government is for Nigeria to move forward; and we shall achieve this,” he said.
