Edo Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has congratulated Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, on his selection as the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 general election.
Speaking in Benin yesterday, the Edo governor described Professor Osinbajo as a man of deep intellect with a heart for social justice.
Said Comrade Oshiomhole: “I wish to congratulate my brother and friend, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on his emergence as the running-mate to our flag-bearer, General Muhammadu Buhari, in the forthcoming presidential election. Personally, I have followed Osinbajo’s remarkable legal career, particularly his stint as two-term Lagos Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General. He impressed me even further as a member of the legal team that argued my case at the court after PDP stole my mandate in the 2007 governorship elections in Edo.
“In the 18-month titanic legal battle, I came to appreciate his prodigious intellect with the insight and illuminations he often brought to our conversations. During his outing in Lagos as Commissioner for Justice, he acquitted himself creditably as a committed legal luminary who deployed law as a veritable tool for social engineering in a way that benefitted the common man.
“I, therefore, have no doubt that he would continue in that illustrious tradition by working together with General Buhari to actualize the dream that our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC), represents, for the benefit of our dear country held down by PDP’s misrule of the last sixteen years.”
