The lawmaker says Nigeria needs a leader who has the courage to make unpopular decisions.

Senator Sola Adeyeye says Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) is eminently qualified to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari as President in 2023 because of his competence and experience acquired over the years.

The federal lawmaker stated this on Saturday, January 15, 2022, at the Meena Event Centre, Kano when loyalists of the VP gathered to urge him to run.

Adeyeye said Nigeria needs a leader with a strong vision, who has the courage to make unpopular decisions, adding that Osinbajo is the leader Nigeria needs.

He said, “The journey which began for our party, the APC, in 2013 comes full circle, ten years after, in 2023. It is a new dawn beckoning upon us to make history. And the new tribe intends to do just that.

“Next year, Nigerians will be summoned to make an exceptional judgment worthy of the times. The forces of history enjoin us to search carefully amongst us for a bold, brave and tireless leader with a resolve to take on challenges that may come our way. A leader with a strong vision for our nation’s future, one who has the courage to make unpopular decisions, a leader with the ability to put our times in the perspectives of history. At that supreme moment we have to get it right. I believe we have that leader in Yẹmí Osinbajo who personifies the calm river that runs deep. A decent and honorable man both in his private and public life.

“Indeed, we are faced with a number of challenges as a country, but truth be told, we have surmounted a number of them. The work of laying the foundation has taken us more time than we envisaged, but then, the fact that the critical building blocks are in place, in certain areas, is proof of progress and a sign that we are going in the right direction. We now stand at the cusp of a new birth at the most critical point in the life of our country. We are faced with the double task of deciding on which direction to go to move our country forward, and of choosing the person to lead us in that direction.

Describing the VP as the man of the moment for Nigeria, the lawmaker said the country needs a president with the grasp, depth, fecundity, confidence, grit, and fortitude to see beyond the frightening and seemingly intractable predilections.
