Umar Faruk, the Emir of Daura, hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari, in Katsina State, has expressed appreciation to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, for supporting “our son”.
According to Laolu Akande, the Media Aide to the Vice President, Faruk made the remark when Osinbajo paid him a courtesy visit in his Palace.
The statement was made available in Abuja, on Friday evening.
The Emir reportedly described Osinbajo as “a typical example of loyalty and trustworthiness in politics”, saying that the Emirate is behind him.
“I can assure you that all of us here, myself and my subjects, are fully and solidly behind you, and in support of you.
“We are happy with you, and we are particularly proud of the way you have supported our son, Buhari, in leading our country, Nigeria, to prosperity.
“That explains why, when you talk about loyalty and trustworthiness among the political class, you stand as an example worthy of note.
“I wish that you carry on with this level of trustworthiness, and continue to uphold the confidence that our son has in you.
“I can assure you that our son has enormous trust in you; I want you to continue to justify that confidence he reposed in you.”
The Emir stated that the nation had never had such a government, where the President and his Deputy operated under such high level of mutual respect and understanding.
He said that from the outset, the government had demonstrated integrity, adding that, Buhari and Osinbajo are men of honour.
