Buhari-and-OsinbajoThe vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the country needs a man of integrity like General Muhamadu Buhari to end corruption in the country.

Osinbajo, who joined passengers in the Bus Rapid Transit from the Tafawa Balewa Square to Barracks area of Lagos, yesterday urged Nigerians to vote for Buhari, saying he is the only one that can curb corruption in the country.

The former Lagos State Commissioner for Justice addressed passengers in the bus, saying he would utilise “unusual opportunities to reach out to Nigerians on the need to vote out the PDP.”

He said, “Every Nigerian knows that General Buhari is no-nonsense person. He is going to make changes that would turn Nigeria around for the better. Remember that the APC is the party of change, collect your PVC and ensure that you vote for the APC.

“The only way to make an omelet is to break an egg, you have to do something and I think that all of us, whatever it is that we are involved in, must be interested in making a difference in this country. This country needs help desperately, considering the economic and the security challenges, everyone of us must be involved in trying to get a change.”

While responding to a question by one of the BRT passengers identified as Mfawa Edet on whether Buhari was sponsoring Boko Haram, Osinbajo dismissed the allegations as “pure propaganda,” noting that If Buhari was sponsoring the Boko Haram sect, they would not have attempted to kill him.

The arrival of Osinbajo at Barracks area of Lagos attracted APC supporters and caused a mild gridlock on the road. Party supporters, who chanted solidarity songs, struggled to take photographs with him.

An elderly woman, identified as Mrs. Wesu Egunemi, caused a mild drama on the bridge when she held Osinbajo in a handshake and asked, “Are you the Osinbajo, the vice-presidential candidate of Buhari? Please do well when you get to power.”

Osinbajo also addressed commuters on the Barracks pedestrian bridge about the plan of the APC to alleviate poverty in the country.

He said, “You can only get to change this country by having the right people in government. One thing I can assure you is that I will not break my promise.”

Giving an account of his stewardship as the Attorney General of Lagos State, Osinbajo said the Lagos State judiciary recorded huge success because he enforced a zero tolerance for corruption.

He said during his tenure, 22 Magistrates and three judges were sacked because of corruption-related cases.
