Vice President Yemi Osibanjo has hinted that he may be much richer than president Muhammadu Buhari.
The vice president said this while speaking during a dinner held in honour of volunteer supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2019 general election, held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday night.
He disclosed that while he was looking at president Buhari’s assets declaration, the vice president realized that he is richer than the president.
“When I looked at his assets declaration form; I was checking it in 2015, I said to him, ‘Mr. President, I am so much richer than you, it is an embarrassment.’
“He replied, ‘I am only a soldier, you are a big lawyer so you should have more money than me.’ I can tell you that he is perhaps, even poorer than he was in 2015 when I saw his declaration of assets form.” Vice President Osibanjo disclosed.
Vice-President Osibanjo also used the opportunity to campaign for the APC candidates in the supplementary elections scheduled for March 23, 2019. He also thanked Nigerians for their support and trust in the previous elections.
“We are still not done with the elections. On the 23rd of March, we still have some outstanding states and as you know we are re-running in about six states. And all of the efforts we need to put into those six states, we still need to do. We can’t afford to slack off and say the job is done; we still have some things to do.”
“I think that one of the main characteristics of the Nigerian is how so supportive and trusting many of our people are and they don’t ask us for too much. They never really ask for anything that is impossible to do. And that’s why, for many of us that went around this country, we realized the tremendous amount of work that there is to do and our capacity to do so much work.
“What our people need, as we discovered, isn’t that much. As a matter of fact, I do not know any nation where the people are so generous no matter how poor they are. It just struck me that what we really need to do a lot more is to connect with the people. All the people need is an opportunity for us to interact with them. We should have a way by which everybody is involved in one way or the other.
“One of the complaints that people made about our government is that we were not communicating enough and that people did not know what had done.” The Vp said.
Finally, he assured the people of the APC administration’s commitment to communicating more with the people in other to carry everyone along.
