Osinbajo takes Shettima on tour of VP wings ahead of inauguration

On Thursday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo gave Vice-President-elect Kashim Shettima a tour of his wing of the presidential mansion.

Shettima talked to State House reporters shortly after the tour of some of the villa’s administrative offices and said: “On the initiative of the Vice President, who is a friend and a contemporary, I came here only to exchange views on how to bring the nation forward.

“Out of courtesy, he showed me around the offices, and I want to compliment him and thank him for doing so. Cross-fertilization of ideas, indeed.

In response to the question of when Nigerians can expect the Tinubu-Shettima administration to have an impact, he said: “I believe Tinubu will hit the ground running from day one. He does not have time to spare. I’ll be the vice president as well. I don’t want to be arrogant or make a big announcement, but my relationship with him has demonstrated that we will get started right away.

When Muhammadu Buhari, the outgoing president, presented him with the national honor, he commented, “It was a historic moment, a humbling experience. We are not what we are because of our intelligence, athletic prowess, ancestry, or political savviness. It is merely a gift from God.

“By God’s help, I think it’s a humbling experience, a call to national service, and we need your support, especially the media, to be successful.

So, I’d like to hire you all to help us create a new Nigeria.

On May 29, 2023, a ceremony to officially inaugurate Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima is set to take place in Eagle Square in Abuja.
