Following the drama that ensued at the All Progressive Congress, APC rally held in Abeokuta, President Muhammadu Buhari called on the Ogun traditional rulers to prevail on their subjects to be law abiding and show respect to constituted authority.
Buhari stated this on Monday at a meeting with Ogun State traditional rulers, led by Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo after the rally.
Buhari said: “Him (Osinbajo) being the Chairman of NEC is in a very strong position to know what we are earning and what we are doing with the earnings.
‘‘I am very pleased with his vast experience and intellect. He has captured effectively what the administration has done and I commend him for playing a very great part in that. Thank you, Mr Vice President.’’
Speaking on what his administration has achieved so far, Buhari said, ‘‘On the promises on security, I have mentioned repeatedly that the people of the North East appreciate our undertakings because you cannot manage a country unless it is secure. We have succeeded in that and we thank God.
‘‘Fighting corruption is the most difficult under our system but still, we have not given up. We are steadfast in our determination to ensure that those who abuse trust are brought before the law and punished.”
Oshiomhole and Buhari were yesterday, booed and stoned at the party’s campaign rally at Ogun state.
The problem started when Oshiomhole mentioned the name of the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Mr. Dapo Abiodun while addressing the crowd.
