Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is not a 'Nigerian' - DELSU lecturer



Emmanuel Ufuophu-Biri, a lecturer and head of department of Mass Communication at the Delta State University Abraka writes on the activities of the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo since assuming office.
Ufuophu-Biri is of the opinion that Osinbajo has exhibited some attribute that portrays him as a non-Nigerian.
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is not a 'Nigerian'
After watching the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo in Benin City, Edo State, on TV live during his fact finding meeting with the good people of Edo state, I realized that he is totally not a Nigerian. He listened to all speakers with rapt attention and concentrated interest.
One could see him practically and personally experiencing the pains of the abandoned and abused people of the Niger Delta. Even when there was a mini riot in the hall he remained calmed and probably prayerful as an ordained man of God.
If the mild drama of mini riot that played out in the hall had happened in a situation where even a local government chairman was in charge, the chairman would have ordered the security men to shoot at sight.
If the person in charge was a state governor or a president, he would have ordered a massive arrest and inglorious shot at perception and at sight, but the learned and erudite scholar and legal luminary of international acclaim did not do any of that.
Rather when he responded he said he equally shared the grievance of the aggrieved Niger Delta people.
This is un-Nigerian.
For him to order all the oil companies to move their headquarters to the Niger Delta is a wonderful act of justice and healing of the age long injury inflicted on the Niger Delta people.
That he visited the Niger Delta states differently and interacted directly with the people and even visited the creeks to personally access the horrible situation is worth more than commendation.
No Nigerian leader at his level has acted like this.
