In less than 24 hours, two Presidential Aspirants had told the Alake and Egba Chiefs why they should have a shot at the most coveted office in Nigeria.
They were Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi.
Speaking at the Ake Palace on Tuesday, 26th of April, 2022, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, who was in company of the Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun and his Vice, Engineer Noimot Salako Oyedele, disclosed to the Egba Monarch and his Chiefs that, his career had largely been defined by serving and helping Nigerian leaders in crucial advisory capacity.
Osinbajo referenced his service as Strategic Adviser to Prince Bola Ajibola SAN, when Ajibola was the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation for some years.
He also recalled his Strategic Office as the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice under Tinubu in Lagos, where his professional prowess won landmark cases in favour of true Federalism.
The Professor of Law pointed out that, his Vice Presidency under Buhari had exposed him to the art of governance under any tough circumstances adding that his boss never hid any aspect of the system from.
He said that having spent seven and half years as Vice President, he should take the opportunity to serve the Nation
The Vice President conceded that, these and many others support and totally loyal services had adequately, exclusively prepared him for a greatest task such as being at the helms of Affairs of a great Nation like Nigeria.
He thanked the Alake, describing him as a unique Monarch whose prayers and support every time, was Big Luck to him.
Osinbajo also appreciated Dapo Abiodun for excellent performances in Ogun State
He said Abiodun would soon commission a railway system in Ijebu axis.
He said he was in Ogun State to report the progress so far in his journey to the State House adding that, it was on 11 April, that he declared his intention to run.
He said that Ogun State had never been short of quality men to run the affairs of the Country.
In his remarks the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo said every President that had passed through Ake, had been largely successful
Oba Gbadebo recalled that Osinbajo had always been outstanding in any task given to him.
The Alake pleaded with the V.P to help in bringing Federal Court of Appeal To Abeokuta Branch to Abeokuta, because 80% of Cases at the Federal Court of Appeal in Ibadan, were from Abeokuta.
In the same development, the Egba Paramount Ruler affirmed that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo had served Nigeria with commitment, adding that that, he is qualified to succeed President Muhamadu Buhari as the President of Nigeria.
He also noted that, the Vice President had paid his dues and deserved to be voted for as the next President of Nigeria.
The Egba Apex Monarch said Ogun State was defined by men of eminence and class in art of leadership and competencies, adding that anyone that had passed through the gate of Alake had always been victorious.
Oba Gbadebo therefore prayed that the Osinbajo’s portion would not be different.
In a similar development, and some 16 hours earlier, on Monday, 25th of April, 2022. the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland prayed for the Transportation Minister, Hon. Chibueke Rotimi Amaechi, who had visited him and asked for his blessings and prayers, in his bid to become next executive President Of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
