Osinbajo takes Shettima on familiarisation tour of villa ahead of inauguration


Ahead of the May 29 inauguration, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday, took Kashim Shettima, his successor, on a familiarisation tour of the presidential villa.


Speaking after the tour, Shettima commended Osinbajo for taking him round the offices out of courtesy.


The Vice-President-elect said he was at the presidential villa to exchange ideas with Osinbajo on how to move the nation forward.


“On the instance of Vic-President, who is a friend and a contemporary, I came here just to exchange ideas on how to move the nation forward,” he said.


 “He took me round the offices out of courtesy and I want to commend him, I want to thank him for extending that courtesy to me.”


On Tinubu’s presidency, Shettima said the president-elect would “hit the ground running” immediately after the inauguration on May 29.


“He does not have the luxury of time. I will be the Vice-President. I don’t want to be presumptuous or make a loud proclamation,” he added.


 “But my interaction with him (Tinubu) has shown that we will hit the ground running from day one.


“I believe it is a humbling experience. It is a call to national duty and by God’s grace, we need the support of all of you, especially the media to succeed.


“So, I wish to employ all of you to join us in building a new Nigeria.”
