There are a few politicians out there who wear their hearts on their sleeves. Osinbajo is one of those. He’s never really been interested in the nation’s top job even when a section of the country clamoured that he should hurl his hat into the 2019 ring following Buhari’s prolonged medical vacation that elapsed in August.
With Buhari away, Osinbajo stepped into the role of Nigeria’s Commander-in-Chief rather admirably. He stepped into Buhari’s shoes and it was as though he had worn them his entire life. He warmed his way into many hearts, one photo-op and steady pair of hands at a time.
