Osinbajo to Nigerians: don’t be discouraged


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday urged Nigerians not to be discouraged by the earlier postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The vice president made the plea in Ilorin during a courtesy visit to the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari.

Thevice president was in Ilorin to conclude the door-to-door campaign to mobilise votes for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Osinbajo said the only way Nigerians could assist to sustain the nation’s democracy and promote good governance was  to come out en mass on Saturday and vote for continuity.

He commended the monarch for his fairness toward political parties and their candidates in the state.

The vice president  said he did not envy the monarch who “has his sons vying for different positions across different parties in Kwara.’’

The vice president prayed for the victory of the president and all All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in the general elections.

The emir, in his remarks, welcomed the vice president and wished him and his entourage well in the elections.

The vice president was accompanied by Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who is the leader of  APC in Kwara.

Also on the entourage were the governorship candidate of the APC in  Kwara, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, the party’s  chairman in the state, Bashir Bolarinwa,  and other party stalwarts.

The vice president and his entourage were welcomed by an unprecedented crowd who thronged the streets leading to the palace  and were chanting “ O to ge’ (Enough is Enough).

From Adabata to Pakata and on to  Isale-Aluko as well as Oja Gboro and Ipata,   the people in their thousands, particularly women and youths,  lined up on the streets with brooms chanting that they were tired of the old order and in need of  a change in Kwara.
