Vice President, Prof.Yemi Osinbajo has revealed that there are people he described as saboteurs working against the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in the country.
He added that Buhari inherited a debased economy from the immediate past administration of Dr Goodluck Jonathan in 2015 saying this had actually prevented some of the steps taken by President Buhari to manifest on the wellbeing of poor Nigerians.
The Vice President spoke on Friday during the funeral service of Mrs Moroluke Fakoyede, mother of the Secretary to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC), Mr Ola Olukoyede held at Saint Luke’s Anglican Church, Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti state.
Osinbajo said: “This country requires everybody to be on board to work hard. I belong to All Progressives Congress (APC), a party that belongs to Chief Obafemi Awolowo. It is not true that President Buhari does not know how to govern, it is not because we have not done enough. There are saboteurs and many fifth columnists working against us, but we are going to triumph.
“The concern of President Buhari and APC and those of us in his government are for Nigeria to move forward and we shall achieve this.
“All the good social investment programmes like tradermoni, the N-power and others will soon start to bear fruits and manifest. We are all going to benefit from Buhari’s administration.”
Osinbajo praised the late Fakoyede for her honesty, saying her good deeds shall continue to bear good fruits in the lives of the children.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila said the late Mrs Fakoyede worked very hard and that the generations yet unborn would continually remember her for being caring, painstaking and honest.
The Speaker, represented by the lawmaker representing Ekiti North Federal constituency II, Hon. Ibrahim Olarewaju, expressed condolences to the family, saying the good Lord shall grant them the fortitude to bear the death of the highly respected community leader.
In his sermon, Revd Mathew Ayorinde Ajao, who read Revelation Chapter 14 verses 12-13, appealed to leaders in the country to always put their trust in God and work for the people rather than themselves
