Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has explained why Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is the President Muhammadu Buhari’s number one confidante.
Osinbajo had visited Kaduna to consult delegates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state for his presidential ambition.
Speaking during the visit, El-Rufai said the presidential hopeful 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 the governor: “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.
