The Vice President Yemi Osinbajo joined President Muhammadu Buhari on the campaign trail today.
Professor Osinbajo, who has been meeting with leaders across the south west over the 2019 elections, travelled to Oyo with President Buhari to meet with Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin and other traditional rulers in the area.
The President told the traditional rulers his administration has built infrastructures across the country.
Speaking at a rally held at Mapo Hall, Ibadan, he said: “I am here to warn you to please reflect on the conditions we met this country in 2015, where we are now and what we are able to do even with the little available resources to us. I keep on repeating this just as a reminder and I challenge any Nigeria to go to Europe, United States and Asia and check for the 16 years of PDP rule; I know you (traditional rulers) are supposed to be apolitical.
“I challenge anybody to go and check, that for the 16 years of PDP, Nigeria was earning good money and the state of our infrastructure and of our people were worse when we came, the road, the rail were in decay and there was no power. Along the line, some of them admitted that they spent 16 million dollars on power and yet to no avail.
“Once the roads are good, the rail is working and there is power, most Nigerians would mind their own business, they won’t even care about who is in government. But when there is no infrastructure, everybody will sit at home and curse the government.”
And he promised to continue the good work he started in 2015, when he became the first President to defeat an incumbent at the polls.
“I assure you that our plan is to secure the country and improve on the economy and things that will rub on the life of the people. You all know these things more than I do because you sit more around your people day-in and day-out.
“So, please we need you and your constituencies, we appeal for your support and understanding. We assure you that we will not abuse the trust and we will not spare anybody who abuses the trust.”
