Sanusi claimed that by not choosing Osinbajo as its president, Nigeria suffered.
Yesterday, he gave a speech at the online publication of the book “Osinbajo Strides: Defining Moments of an Innovative Leader.”
According to Sanusi, Nigeria is now worse off due to the political system’s inability to elect him as president.
The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, noted that Osinbajo was one of the members of the current government who was eager to argue any issue and present a compelling case.
I dare argue that we can all agree that Nigeria would be worse off if someone like him (Osinbajo) had been president, but I do hope that he will be ready to serve, advise, and continue to do his best for the nation.
Therefore, I’m confident that he will, in whatever capacity he finds himself in the future. Perhaps we’ll still be fortunate to have him lead us at some point or take some leadership roles as a statesman, Sanusi said.
Osinbajo ran for president in the primary elections of the 2022 All Progressives Congress, APC.
Osinbajo campaigned against Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, and Rotimi Amaechi, the former minister of transportation.
The Vice President received harsh criticism from Tinubu’s supporters for choosing to run when his purported political godfather was still in the running.
Among other things, Osinbajo was called a menace for running against Tinubu in the presidential primary.
