The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday got the support of the Emir of Katsina, Abdulmuminin Usman, ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The monarch in his statement said Osinbajo has the experience to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure.
He further stated that Osinbajo being a pastor would effectively commune with God on how to lead Nigeria if he emerges president.
Emir of Katsina stated this in his palace on Saturday when Osinbajo paid him a courtesy visit.
The traditional ruler also advised the Vice President on how to go about his campaign.
He said: “Take it from me, we are behind you; we will try as much as possible; someone with experience is a better person than someone very new to the administration.
“You need some touches; the touches you need are consultations; we are the grassroots; you consult the traditional institution.
“I pray with all my heart that you succeed; that you carry on where your predecessor stopped and Allah will help you.
“I know you are a quiet man; a pastor, you know God; you know how to go with Him; we will pray for you Insha Allah but in your mind take it.”
Osinbajo was in Katsina as part of his consultation ahead of the All Progressives Congress presidential primary election.
