The Emir of Daura in Kastina State, Alhaji Umar Faruk, has described Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, as a typical example of loyalty and trustworthiness in politics.
A statement by Laolu Akande, senior special assistant to the president on Media and Publicity, office of the vice-president, said Faruk made the remark when Osinbajo paid him a courtesy visit in his palace, on Thursday. The statement was made available in Abuja, on Friday.
The emir expressed appreciation to the acting president for being supportive of President Muhammadu Buhari, a son of the emirate.
“I can assure you that all us, myself and my subjects, are fully and solidly behind you and in support of you. We are happy with you and we are particularly proud of the way you have supported our son, Buhari, in leading our country Nigeria to prosperity.
“That explains why your talk about loyalty and trustworthiness among the political class stands as an example worthy of note. I wish that you carry on with this level of trustworthiness and continue to uphold the confidence that our son has in you,’’ he said.
The emir said that the nation had never had such a government where the president and his vice operate under such high level of mutual respect and understanding. He said that from the onset, the government had demonstrated integrity, adding that Buhari and Osinbajo were men of honour.
The traditional ruler also thanked the governor of Kastina State, Alhaji Aminu Masari, for his developmental strides and pledged support for his administration.
