A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kebbi State, Salihu Isa Nataro, has canvassed support for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, should he (Buhari) decide not to run in 2019.

Speaking in an interview over the weekend in Birnin Kebbi, Nataro, a gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the APC in 2015, also called on the need to encourage Buhari to give Osinbajo more responsibilities in critical areas.

“Osinbajo, whom I see to be a possible replacement of Muhammadu Buhari is very active and understands the president more than any member of the cabinet. We must be proud of this co-operation to reconstruct Nigeria.”

Nataro said from the way Buhari formed his cabinet, ethnic, religious and party sentiments have become history in the scheme of politics and governance in the country.

He called on the need to reposition the judiciary, which he said has concentration of questionable judges, oversized staff with various categories of courts such as customary, Sharia and so on.

He also called on the federal government to introduce online judicial administration.
