The vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, said partnership is very important in governance and if he becomes the next president, he will adopt partnership model in his governance.

Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, has revealed on Monday, that the vice president had a dinner with speakers and deputy speakers of State Houses of Assembly on Sunday, at his official residence in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Osinbajo said consultations with the people is significant to makes governance easier and speedily developed the nation, especially in a complex country like Nigeria.

He said, ‘That is the kind of relationship that I think makes governance easier.

” The only way to make a complex country like this work is by consultations; there is no other way.

“In terms of training on the job, I think I am quite well trained.

“So, I believe very strongly that, although there are other contestants who are also very capable and competent, I believe that just in terms of readiness, I think that if there is anyone who is prepared for that, I am certainly that person.

“So, if by the grace of God, I am nominated by the party and the electorate, I think that God helping us, we will be able to do much in office.

“And one of the very important things for me is what I would describe as a partnership,” he said.

Osinbajo shared his experience during his visit to Niger Delta in 2017 on behalf of the president.

“That engagement taught me something very crucial, the most important thing of all in this country, is for us to be able to sit down and talk on any issue.

“People want to be able to express their views, and they want to be heard/helped, and we must create the time to hear them to understand their views.

“Whatever policy that is, engagement is always the best approach, I think that has succeeded in so many instances. I am confident that the partnership model is one that will always work,” he said.

In response of the speakers to Osinbajo:

Tasiu Musa-Maigari, the Katsina State House of Assembly Speaker said Osinbajo will make a good president because of his good qualities of leadership.

Olakunle Oluomo, the Ogun State House of Assembly Speaker, said there will be speedily development in Nigeria if Osinbajo becomes the next president.

Abdullahi Wuse, the Niger State House of Assembly speaker comments:

“Few people have the intellectual capacity, the capabilities that you are exhibiting as the vice president of this country.

“We look forward to a situation where you will be the President; I believe that you will do more if given the opportunity to be president of this country,” he said.

Ibrahim Abdullahi, the Nasarawa State House of Assembly Speaker comments:

“We appreciate your capacity and intelligence. And we are thankful that we have somebody like Osinbajo in this country.

“We don’t need to be reminded that even the president trusts you so much, and trusts your capacity.

“You love this country, and we are sure by the time the vice president takes over from President Buhari, you will start where he ends.

“By the special grace of God, the vice president will take over the ticket of the APC.

“We are going to line up behind you; If truly, we want this country to prosper, this is the time to rally round the vice president.

“It is not about religion; it is about capacity; we are sure of your capacity and we are sure you are going to take us to the next level,” he said.
