Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is the light in the midst of darkness in Aso Villa, according to the Founder of Christ Life Church Bishop Wale Oke.

Bishop Wale said this over the weekend, noting that he (Osinbajo) has been the only one in Aso Rock without any scandal since President Muhammadu Buhari took over.

“The point is it is easy to criticise. A lot of people don’t know the role that man is playing there. He is the ‘sole light’ in the midst of darkness in Aso Villa and he is doing his best,” he noted.

This is as he added that, “On a personal level, he’s been there for four years without any scandal.

“He has carried himself with poise and dignity. His grasp of national issues, the analysis, the confidence with which he speaks, oh come on!

“Church, wake up and celebrate your hero and champion. On the two occasions on which he has acted as President, everybody knew everything was different.

“What else do you want him to do? He is not the President. There is a limit to the role of the vice president.

“He and the president are close because the President has found him trustworthy. We’ve had issues in this nation before where governor and deputy governor would be at each other’s throat.

“It was the same with the President and Vice President such that rather than getting busy with the administration of the country, they would be creating a distraction.

“We don’t have that now. The man just wants to serve the nation. I give him kudos.”
