Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is currently in the United Arab Emirates where he is observing his vacation.

According to his spokesperson, Laolu Akande, in a tweet Wednesday, Mr. Osinbajo left the country alongside his wife and children.

“VP Osinbajo, his wife & children have been resting abroad on his annual leave. He is expected back in the country this weekend from the UAE,” Mr. Akande said.

This is probably the first time since the coming of the Buhari Administration that Mr. Osinbajo is enjoying his annual leave.

He has been a very busy official as well as acting president when Mr. Buhari spent the better part of 2017 on medical vacation in London, UK.

It is a common joke at the Presidential Villa whenever the vice president was chairing any meeting, especially, the Federal Executive Council, FEC, that “people will be here all day.”

    Can you imagine where they go to spend our money in the name of vacation !. The man went on medical tourism – period.

    • Julius

      It would have been patriotic of you if you had let us know when you , his aide and family were planning his MEDICAL TOURISM. Kinda late now..aint it ?

  • Arabakpura

    I just hope he will not visit Maina from there!

    • Tommy Soto

      How about hoping that the VP’s security crew spot Maina, have him booked by local authorites and extradited back to Nigeria, along with the records of where the alleged loot is located?

      • Arabakpura

        The man Maina appears to know the Appian ways better than the Nigerian security! If they couldn’t stop him in Nigeria, how do you think they can create that feat in Dubai when the environment will wow and overwhelm them!

    That’s very timely VP, you have earned it by all means. Go. Recharge yourself because you have been very active since the inception of this govt.

  • MP-001* [Joint Chief]

    When you work with a bunch of lazy nincompoops you tend to burn out. Mr VP Sir, please go and recharge your batteries, don’t worry by May 2019 your work load will be reduced drastically.

    A pastor? What is he doing in UAE? Is that the best place for a vacation for someone like Osinbajo? Or was it a combination of vacation and ‘religious retreat’ for a pastor? Is there a branch of RCCG in the UAE?
