The United States of America and the United Kingdom have expressed their confidence in the ability and commitment of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to continue with the anti-corruption war and economic revival in Nigeria.
The two countries made this known to SUNDAY PUNCH on Friday that they have no doubt that Osinbajo will carry on with the good leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to the spokesman for the US Embassy in Nigeria, Russell Brooks, President Donald Trump’s administration believes in Buhari and Osinbajo.
He said, “We are very much in favour of President (Muhammadu) Buhari’s campaign against corruption. We also believe that Acting President (Yemi) Osinbajo is strongly committed to this agenda and will continue to pursue it while President Buhari is out of the country.”
The President who is away from Nigeria, is presently in the UK to receive medical attention and he is expected to be there for an indefinite time, according to his media aide, Femi Adesina.
In his last medical trip to Britain, Buhari was away for 49 days.
