Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has disclosed what he would consider to be the greatest gift Nigerians can give him for his birthday.
Yesterday, Osinbajo turned 62 years old.
He has now said that he would love for Nigerians to work together with the President to build a greater nation, saying this would be a befitting birthday gift for him.
He was quoted as saying this in a statement by his spokesperson, Laolu Akande, on Saturday, when asked by journalists about “the greatest gift he would want Nigerians to give him for this birthday”.
In response, the VP said, “One thing I would like very much is for all of us to work together towards building a great country. I think we all have what it takes to make this country truly great.
“And the greatest gift would be all of us working together, across tribes, across faith and the entire Nation coming together to work with President Buhari and the government to achieve the very best that we can.”
He made the comments on Saturday, shortly after casting his vote, alongside his wife, Dolapo, at the VGC Polling unit, Lagos State, for the Governorship and State Assembly elections.
Professor Osinbajo also stated that he was pleased with the conduct of the elections at the polling unit thus far.
