Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday morning took the oath of office as Nigeria’s vice president.
Osinbajo who took the oath of allegiance today is to act in the capacity as the vice president of Nigeria in piloting the affairs of the country.
In his oath of office, Osinbajo pledged to do right to all manner of people and to discharge his duties without fear or favour.
Naija News reports that Osinbajo read the oath after the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed.
He took the oath before Nigerians in the company of his wife, Dolapo Osinbajo.
The Vice President finished reciting his oath at about 10;30 am on Wednesday, May 29 at the Eagles Square in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital where the inauguration is currently ongoing.
Osinbajo was sworn-in for the second time after he was sworn in as Nigeria’s vice president in 2015.
Osinbajo sought re-election as vice president when he ran as running mate to President Muhammadu Buhari under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Recall that the swearing-in comes after the APC had defeated the closest political party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February presidential election.
