Chief Dele Momodu, CEO and publisher of Ovation International has said he loves Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for many reasons but worries about banal politics of parochialism that could impede his good work.
In a post on Instagram, Mr Momodu described Prof Osinbajo as God-fearing and intelligent.
“I love our Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo for many reasons, smart, intelligent, cerebral, God-fearing, energetic, and so on.
“He is one of the reasons many of us placed high hopes in the Buhari government. He and a few others have made significant contributions to the modest achievements of this government but I doubt he’s been able to perform optimally because of the type of banal politics of parochialism we play in our clime.
“No one would have noticed the palpable weaknesses of this government if Prof was allowed to run shows in a more professional manner. We saw the obvious difference anytime he had acted as President.
“He is now the major pillar of Buhari’s Presidential campaign crisscrossing Nigeria and beyond to make up for the gaping holes in a government that promised so much but delivered too little.
He then went on to pray for Osinbajo. “I pray he is not being overused and over-stressed at the moment and hope, when tomorrow comes, and by some stroke of miracle they win, he would not be discarded and made redundant while some invisible forces begin to flex muscles again.
“This is a sad reality Nigeria has to live with until our great country is restructured, one way or another. Good luck Prof,” he wrote.
