Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday night assured that he and President Muhammadu Buhari, will defend the trust Nigerians reposed on them.

He gave the assurance during the Presidential Inauguration State Banquet in his honour and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The duo were earlier on Wednesday sworn in for second term in office.

Osinbajo said those Nigerians best days just begun as the next level administration kicks off.

He said: “We will defend the trust Nigerians reposed on us. The best years of Nigeria begins today.”

Osinbajo, disclosed that between 12 midnight Tuesday to 10:30am Wednesday, there was no President and Vice President and commended Senate President, Bukola Saraki for not taking advantage and trying anything funny.

The Vice President said: “From 12 last night to 10:30am there was virtually no President and Vice President. We were happy that there was no problem.

“I will like to thank Mr. Senate President for not doing anything funny.” he said

Many guests had difficulty accessing the venue of the dinner due to traffic jam.

Some diplomats that managed to get to the old Banquet Hall, were pushed and shoved, as they were told the hall was full to capacity and could not accommodate them.

Also a toast to the Federal Republic of Nigeria was led by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole.

Oshiomhole said those who thought Nigeria will be insurmountable are now having a rethink.

He said no matter the challenges going through, the sum total is that Nigeria is bigger than her problems.

Among those at the dinner included the Wife of the Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo, former Head of State, Yakubu Gowon.

Others are Senator Ahmed Lawan, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.

Service chiefs, heads of Ministries Departments and Agencies, royal fathers, diplomatic corps also attended the dinner.
