Nigeria’s Vice President who spoke on Sunday at the Presidential Villa Banquet Hall, disclosed that his wife prefers the quiet life to the rigours of politics.
Yemi who revealed that his wife prefers quiet life at a Thanksgiving Service organised by the Aso Villa Chapel to thank God for the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari and Osinbajo, stated that God was truly worthy of praise and thanksgiving.
“It is impossible to thank him enough; I and my family have too many reasons to thank God. One day my wife and I reflected on how unlikely our journey here is. She reminded me that all she wanted was a quiet life as one of the many families of academics living on the University campus.
“If someone had said to me in 2013 you will be campaigning across the country;. you will win the elections and become Vice President of Nigeria I would, because I am generally polite, have said amen but in my heart, say what a crazy chap!”
Any one who knows how difficult it is to campaign for local government chairman and win, you will not find it difficult to accept that except the Lord build the house they labour in vain who build it” he said.
