The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has said a National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu appointed him Commissioner without meeting him in person.
Osinbajo, who served as attorney-general and commissioner of justice of Lagos State between 1999 and 2007 made the disclosure while speaking during an event to mark the 50th Lagos anniversary.
The Acting President commended Tinubu for taking cognisance of the diversity of the state while forming his cabinet in 1999.
According to Osinbinjo, “I did not and I had never met Bola Tinubu before I was appointed commissioner and that says a lot about the kind of individual that he is.
“This is the kind of thinking that makes nations great; that is the kind of thinking that would make Nigeria great.
“A type of thinking that considers all of our diverse talents; a kind of thinking that does not allow parochialism; a kind of thinking that does not allow us to say anywhere belongs to only a set of people. That is when our country would be truly great.”
