We have the assurance that with someone so gifted like him at the helms of affairs things will surely be much better.

"We have therefore come unto you as our father in Remo land to present this letter to you which is written by sons and daughters of Remo land asking Prof Yemi Osinbajo to as a matter of urgency declare interest to run for the presidential seat in 2023. We plead with you Kabiyesi to help us ensure that this letter get to your son in Abuja".
