As Vice President Yemi Osinbajo marks his 63rd birthday on Sunday, there are four principal qualities that set him apart, says Laolu Akande, his media aide.
“These are: the grace of God that ordains and separates him and which causes him to be elevated and triumphant; the fear of God; relentless hardworking ethos; and a tremendous understanding of strategy and timing,” Akande said in a statement released today.
Speaking further, Osinbajo’s spokesman, who said he had relocated from the US to serve the Buhari/Osinbajo administration in pursuit of its reform agenda, explained that he has also become a student of the rare constellation of qualities he had discovered about the Vice President.
Explaining each of the four attributes, Akande said that the grace of God is the “very foundation of Prof Yemi Osinbajo. It defines who he is, assures him of God’s readiness, willingness and ability to fight his battles and secures his destiny.”
According to him, Osinbajo’s fear of God moderates his attitude and produces the humility many know him for.
He noted that the Vice President’s preparation is also evidenced by past and current hardworking ethos.
“And lastly, his knowledge, strategy and timing, proof that indeed he knows what to do and how to get it done, often times.
“I have gladly been a student this past 5 years working closely for this very good man. And we are all thankful to God for preserving his life and for blessing him so much for God’s own glory,” Akande said.
