The Emir of Daura, Kastina State, Alhaji Umar Faruk, has described the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, as a typical example of loyalty and trustworthiness in politics.

A statement on Friday by Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the Vice-President, said Emir Faruk made the remark when Osinbajo paid him a courtesy visit in his Palace in Daura.

Daura is the country home of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Emir expressed appreciation to the Acting President for being supportive of President Muhammadu Buhari, a son of the emirate.

“I can assure you that all us here, myself and my subjects; we are fully and solidly behind you and in support of you.

“We are happy with you and we are particularly proud of the way you have supported our son, Buhari, in leading our country Nigeria to prosperity.

“That shows that when you talk about loyalty and trustworthiness among the political class; you stand as an example worthy of note.

“I wish that you carry on with this level of trustworthiness and continue to uphold the confidence that our son has in you.

“I can assure you that our son has enormous trust in you, I want you to continue to justify that confidence he reposed in you,“ he said.

The Emir noted that the nation had never had such a government where the president and his vice operated under such high level of mutual respect and understanding.

He said that from the onset, the government had demonstrated integrity, adding that Buhari and Osinbajo were men of honour.
