The Emir of Katsina, Abdulmuminin Usman, has said that he is in support of the 2023 Presidential ambition of Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The top traditional ruier said Osinbajo has the experience to effectively occupy the President’s office.
According to him, the position of Osinbajo as a pastor would enable him effectively commune with God on how to pilot the affairs of Nigeria if elected President.
The monarch made this remark in his palace in Katsina on Saturday when Osinbajo paid him a courtesy visit.
He also advised the Vice President on how to go about his campaign.
He said: “Take it from me, we are behind you; we will try as much as possible; someone with experience is a better person than someone who is very new to the administration.
“You need some touches; the touches you need are consultations; we are the grassroots; you consult the traditional institution.
“I really pray with all my heart that you succeed; that you carry on where your predecessor stopped and Allah will help you.
“I know you are a quiet man; a pastor, you know God; you know how to go with Him; we will pray for you Insha Allah but in your mind take it.”
The Vice President was in the state as part of his consultation ahead of the All Progressives Congress, APC, convention.
