Osinbajo , who led the Tradermoni programme in the Ado Ekiti metropolis , Ikere and Omuo Ekiti , was also at Iworoko Ekiti to condole with the community over the truck accident that claimed the lives of no fewer than 15 persons .

“ Many of our leaders are not responsible ; so, Nigeria needs an honest man to lead the people and President Buhari is doing just that . Don ’ t allow anybody to deceive you . President Buhari is an honest man. ”
