The Emir of Daura, Umar Faruk, has expressed gratitude to the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo’s following his effort to support the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Ahmed Kaita in the senatorial bye-election.
The emir also described Osinbajo as “a typical example of loyalty and trustworthiness in politics.”
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice-President, Laolu Akande, said Faruk made the remark when Osinbajo paid him a courtesy visit in his Palace on Thursday.
The Emir in a statement made available in Abuja on Friday said:
“To Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, saying, “We’re proud of the way you’ve supported our son.”
“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 said 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 President Muhammadu Buhari and Osinbajo were men of honour.
The traditional ruler thanked the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, for his developmental strides and pledged support for his administration.
