A Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, has opined that President Muhammadu Buhari can not achieved what his deputy, Yemi Osinbajo did while he was on medical vacation in London.
Mohammed said this while commending Osinbajo for his role during the period Buhari was away in the UK.
The former lawmaker said the Vice President was “able to hold the ship of the nation steadily.”
According to Mohammed, “I express the nation’s gratitude to Osinbajo. I have to be very careful about showering praises on him because he was not alone. But by and large, I am glad to say congratulations to him because he has not created any crisis on his own.
“The area he could have caused crisis was his unique interpretation of hate speech, something which is not even in the constitution not in any of the country’s laws.
” It was his own invention but thank God it’s not going to stand the test of time because quite a number of lawyers have condemned it.
“I don’t believe Buhari could have achieved what Osinbajo did in his absence. The basic contradiction is that he is a sick man.
” Sick men are not assessed on the basis of their performance. But the comparison is baseless because it’s not Osinbajo who was elected.
As far as I am concerned, Osinbajo came in as a very good number two for the country, not necessarily for Buhari. I hope he continues to be loyal to the country.”
