NIGERIA POLITICS: Vice President Osinbajo Makes Case For Competent Deputies

Vice President Osinbajo is a priced asset that has proven roundly that contrary to the impression some people hold, Nigeria has an abundance of competent and well-honed leaders that can steer its ship from perdition. His stellar showing in the period he managed the affairs of the country is a credible and resounding testimonial that the offices of Vice President and Deputy Governors are critical and should not be filled with pawns that merely acquiesce to whatever the boss wants.

The tragedy is not more of an Ozubulu problem as it is an Igbo problem.
