Acting President Yemi Osinbajo in President Muhammadu Buhari home state of Katsina declared that the former military dictator treats him as one of his sons.

According to Laolu Akande, one of the presidential spokespersons, Osinbajo said this on Thursday, May 11, 2017 during his visit the northwestern state for the launch of the micro small and medium enterprises (MSME) clinic in the state.

Shortly after his arrival in the state, the acting president proceeded to the palace of Abdulmumini Usman, emir of Katsina.

“In fact, the president has taken me as a son in the way he treats me,” Akande quoted Osinbajo as saying in a set of tweets on the micro-blogging website, Twitter.

“I feel very much at home in Katsina. Moreso because this is the state of the president who has taken me as a brother.

“The amount of responsibilities President Buhari has given me shows he seriously believes we can live together as brothers.

“I pray the Lord will preserve our president to continue to lead as the nation has voted him to do. He seriously believes in Nigerian unity,’ the president said.

This visit to Katsina by the acting president is made as the country continues to debate the significance of the ailing president failing to name him as “acting president” in a letter to the National Assembly as he proceeded on an indefinite leave.
