He reportedly made this remark while speaking at the launch of a photobook about the speaker in Abuja on Saturday.
Osinbajo stated that Gbajabiamila winning elections five times in the last 18 years is an attribute of the speaker being resilient.
The vice-president also commended Ayo Adeagbo, personal photographer to the speaker, who authored the photobook.
“Ayo has proved to be a creative and faithful storyteller of the political journey of the charismatic and photogenic speaker,” Osinbajo said.
“I really think Ayo has done a good job. But I think the job was made easier by the fact that his subject is one of the most resilient, one of the most resourceful and most successful Nigerian politicians, having won elections five times in the last 18 years.
“He is an effective bridge builder across tribes, across religions, across political parties, and even generations. He has proved to be an innovative mediator and an honest broker in several local and national disputes and conflicts.”
