Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday stated that he expects the reign of King Charles to bring more prosperity and peace to the Commonwealth and the rest of the World.
Premium Politics reported that Osinbajo represented Nigeria during the State funeral for the late Queen Elizabeth ll of the United Kingdom.
He was among the World leaders who visited Westminster Hall to witness the lying in state, alongside the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau; USA President Joe Biden and France President, Emmanuel Macron, and other royals and Heads of State and Governments across the world.
Addressing newsmen after the burial ceremony of the late monarch, he, “We wish King Charles well indeed. We’re all anxious that he succeeds and that perhaps he does it better than the mother which is always the hope of his mother.
I’m sure that the Queen will really hope that all her successors and in this case King Charles will do much better than she did. So we are all looking forward to a wonderful reign.
“A reign that will bring prosperity and peace not just to England but to the Commonwealth and to all of us.”
While describing the conduct of the funeral, he stated that the event is a historic event which has brought together leaders of the World.
“For countries like ours, for Nigeria and for the Commonwealth, this has been very ennobling, very strengthening.
“I am sure that King Charles felt not just the honour of having so many people come by, but also the reassurance that there is a brotherhood across the world and that the Commonwealth remains strong, a Commonwealth of free nations who willingly subscribe to coming together, to work together to achieve sometimes disparate political objectives but clear economic objectives.
it is a historic event and one that is unlikely to happen, perhaps in another lifetime, just the sheer enormity of all that has happened and the gathering of leaders from everywhere, the goodwill, the good wishes, and all of that from practically everywhere around the world.”
“So, I think that this has truly been a testament to the sort of person the queen was – in life and death, brought people together and perhaps even more so in death,” he added.
