Osinbajo Takes Shettima On Aso Rock Tour




May 26, (THEWILL) – Outgoing Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday, took the incoming Vice President, Kashim Shettima, on a familiarisation tour of the Vice President’s wing of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, Shettima commended Osinbajo for the gesture.

“On the instance of Vice President, who is a friend, a contemporary, I came here just to exchange ideas on how to move the nation forward.

“He took me round the offices out of courtesy and I want to commend him, I want to thank him for extending that courtesy to me. Yes, cross fertilisation of ideas”, he said.

On how soon Nigerians should expect the impact of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidency, he said: “I believe President Tinubu will hit the ground running from day one. He does not have the luxury of time. And I will be the Vice President I don’t want to be presumptuous, I don’t want to make loud proclamation, but my interaction with him has shown that we will hit the ground running from day one.”

Earlier on Thursday, President Muhammadu Buhari conferred National Honours on Tinubu and Shettima. The incoming Vice President was conferred with Grand Commander of the Order of Niger (GCON).

Speaking on his national honour, Shettima said it was a historical and humbling experience.

“We are what we are not because of our intellect, not because of our physical prowess, not because of our pedigree or political sagacity. It’s just a gift from God to humanity, four years or eight years in this time.

“I believe is a humbling experience, is a call to national duty and by God’s grace we need the support of all of you, especially the media to succeed. So, I wish to employ all of you to join us in building a new Nigeria”, he said.
