Mother of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Mrs Olubisi Osinbajo, says anyone who doesn’t believe the Buhari-led administration has done anything since they assumed office in 2015, is living in another world.
The 85 -year-old widow said this today when her son paid her a visit in her home during his house-to-house campaign in Somolu area of Lagos State.
“They have tried. If anybody says they have not done anything, then you can say that man or woman is not in this world because they have tried. What Buhari and Osinbajo did in three years, people couldn’t do it for 16 years. We are praising God and we shall praise God after the elections” she said
The elated mother thanked God for sparing her son’s life in the Kogi helicopter crash last weekend.
“I am overwhelmed with this visit and I must thank God for everything that He is doing in my life. Do you know that on Thursday (January 31), I was busy thanking God and praising God. I didn’t know what was going to happen on Saturday (day Osinbajo’s helicopter crashed in Kogi). I have been praising God and I told my people I wanted to praise God on that Thursday until evening of that day, not knowing that something would happen on Saturday. That gift was given to me by Jesus Christ that I should be praising Him and that I will never be sorrowful. That was what God told me,” Mrs. Osinbajo said.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has suspended its three-month old strike. The leadership of the academic union have also been asked to resume on Friday February 8th.
National President of the union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, announced this on Thursday February 7th during a press briefing at the Nigeria Labour Congress complex in Abuja.
The striking lecturers took the decision after a meeting with representatives of the Federal Government led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.
ASUU began the strike in November 2018.
A viral video shows the moment a teacher and a student had an altercation that turned into a cat fight.
It is not clear what caused the fight but the teacher can be heard telling the crowd just before the fight started:
Do you see this? I’m going to press charges
They continued exchanging words until it turned physical and they began throwing punches, and dragging each other’s hair.
Students rushed to separate them but they were unsuccessful. They were both soon on the ground and were dragging at each other’s clothes.
The student said to the teacher at one point:
Bitch I’ll kill you. Do you know that? I’ll fu***** kill you.
The girl then bit the teacher’s hand and spat in her face.
Some have blamed the teacher for bringing herself so low to fight with a student. But some have said that students have become so disrespectful, thereby making it hard for teachers to ignore them.
Watch the very shocking video below.
