Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has claimed Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is President Muhammadu Buhari’s number one confidante.
El-Rufai stated this during Osinbajo’s consultative meeting with delegates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna yesterday.
According to him, Osinbajo has earned the respect of the President, governors, and Nigerians due to the way he conducts the affairs of the National Economic Council, NEC.
According to El-Rufai: “Osinbajo is the number one confidante of President Muhammadu Buhari, and has the respect of all the governors of Nigeria, across party lines, because of the way and manner he steers the affairs of the National Economic Council.
“He’s not just here because he is running for President. He is here because he has a close affinity with the government and people of Kaduna State. I want those that don’t know, our party leaders and delegates, to know that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has always shown uncommon love for the people of Kaduna State.”
