Osinbajo Was Already A Professor Before He Joined Tinubu; It’s an Insult To Say He Was Discovered – Ambassador Joe Keshi
During the Morning Show program on Arise News, Ambassador Joe Keshi, former consular general at the Nigerian mission in Washington D.C U.S.A., said that Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President of Nigeria, was already a professor before he joined Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, APC presidential candidate’ administration.
He made the statement when he was reacting to Tinubu’s engagement in the Chatham House, the criticism and people defending Tinubu.
Amb. Keshi firsthand said that what he found strange about what happened in Chatham House really was not actually what happened in Chatham House but the quality and the high calibre of intelligent people that are defending what happened there.
He questioned that if Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu cannot stand up and answer simple and direct questions, then he is not worthy to be on any ticket.
Amb. Keshi then said that anybody who defend Tinubu on this, particularly those who know it is wrong and continue to defend it, is not good enough. He said it is painful to see people you respect, people you admire for whatever reason come out and make the serious argument that it is teamwork.
“It is the same thing you hear when they defend Tinubu that he knows how to discover talents, listen, I think it is an insult to people like professor Osinbajo, when you say he was discovered. He was already a professor of Law and already a SAN before he joined the administration of Tinubu. You discovers talents when they are young.”
