According to the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Nigeria lost by not electing Osinbajo as its president and that failure of the political system to throw him up as president has made Nigeria worse off.
“And I dare say, we all agree that Nigeria is worse off for not having someone like him (Osinbajo) as president, but I do hope that he will be available to serve and to advise and to put in his best for the country and continue to do. So I’m sure he will, in whatever capacity he finds himself in the future, and maybe we’ll still be lucky to have him lead us at some point or take some leadership role as a statesman,” Sanusi said
Recall that Osinbajo contested in the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential primaries in June 2022 against the President-elect, Bola Tinubu; former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; among others. He however lost to Tinubu who emerged the party’s flagbearer and won the February 25th presidential election.
