Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, paid a condolence visit to the family of orator, elder-statesman, distinguished diplomat and the Danmasinin Kano, Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule, on the Third day prayer in Kano State.
While on the visit, the Acting President paid a courtesy call to the Emir of Kano.
According to the Acting President, "One of the things for me that is heart-warming is that we can still talk about a truly great Nigerian. You know these days, sometimes it’s hard to find role models, very difficult to find people who you can say - I would like to be like this person."
"I do not know how many people spoke the English language better than Alhaji Maitama Sule. If there’s anything that I would have wanted to take away from him before he left, it’s that great power of oratory and eloquence that he had."
