The young shoemaker shared his photo on Twitter to get the attention of Osinbajo
A young Nigerian man has made it in life after getting the attention of Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo with his skill.
The man with the Twitter handle @Ojbest5 made great progress after tweeting that he would like to be the VP’s shoemaker.
In the said tweet, the man also told the vice president he will like to meet him and show him the kind of shoes he makes. Weeks after his initial tweet, Osinbajo sent delegates to inspect his shop and take a look at his products.
According to @Ojbest5, there were long conversations between him and the representatives as he said a “lot of promising things are coming” his way.
I am a Nigerian entrepreneur who specializes on the production of quality leather shoes from scratch to finish. I will like to make shoe for you and meet you in person to show case my product to the world.
I will be grateful if I get a reply.

A testament to Osinbajo’s “Economic Sustainability Plan currently being implemented, has been an openness to new creative ideas. A proof that Made In Nigeria is better, to grow our economy.”
