In his interaction with Baba Gazazhin at Friday’s visit, the Vice President thanked the Gazazhins and members of the community for their support and prayers during the 2019 elections, inquiring about Baba and his community’s welfare.

He also assured Baba of government’s continued support for the community.

Speaking through an interpreter, Baba Gazazhin reminded the Vice President of how he had predicted that President Buhari and he (Prof. Osinbajo) would emerge victorious at the polls.
“Remember, I did say you and the President will win and this came to pass,” Pa Gazazhin said.

The visibly elated centenarian also informed the Vice President of some of the basic needs of the community especially issues affecting the youths.
