Vice president Yemi Osinbajo says his principal President Muhammadu Buhari is hilarious and would make a good comedian when he retires in 2023. 

“Mr President is a very humorous man and I think he would make a very good career in entertainment one way or the other when he retires,” Mr Osinbajo said.

The vice president made this statement on Friday while proposing a toast to Mr Buhari at the president’s 80th birthday dinner held at the State House Banquet Hall.

Mr Osinbajo further narrated how the president humorously calmed him down when he was upset about an allegation levelled against him.

“One day, I went to him because they were some allegations that were made against me. And I was so angry, so I went to him to show him the letter I had written to the EFCC to investigate. He looked at it and looked at me and because he calls me VP or Professor depending on his mood. 

“This time he said, ‘VP, why do you worry yourself about all these people. These people just make all sorts of allegations, they make all sorts of stories up, even they are saying that I am about to get married again.

“And even some foolish people were waiting at the National Mosque, waiting for me to come and marry again,” Mr Osinbajo said.

Mr Buhari’s tenure will elapse on May 25, 2023. The octogenarian has severally said he would retire to his farm in Daura, Katsina, once his leaves Aso Rock.
