Nigeria has as its President at this time the kind of leader the nation needs — honest, straightforward and operating from a genuine heart, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said.

According to Osinbajo, though some people say President Muhammadu 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,” the VP declared.

Osinbajo spoke today during a courtesy visit by a delegation from the Deeper Christian Life Church, led by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi at the Presidential Villa, adding, regarding the president and himself, “we have worked together very, very well.”

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.”

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