Mercedes Benz S550 Armoured Sedan : The Official Car of Prof. Yemi Osibanjo

The vice president/acting president, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo needs no introduction, he can be said he is a workaholic, 24/7, 365 days, he is always working. Prof. Yemi is a SAN, a pastor and also a lecturer before assuming the Vice President of Nigeria and by his position, he is the 2nd man in Nigeria. Interestingly, Prof. Osibanjo rides the same car as Pres. Buhari that is Mercedes 550 Armoured Sedan Car. Osibanjo is a private man so its always hard seeing him around except on official occassion so this is the best shot of his personal car we can see so far. Below are specs and features of this mighty beast called Mercedes Benz 550 Sedan Car. It may interest you to note that this is an OEM car, additional customization may involve.

The S-Class full-size luxury sedan has long been the face of class, sophistication, and cutting-edge technology for Mercedes-Benz. The latest S continues the tradition with perhaps the most pampering cabin on the market and enough gadgetry to put technophiles into a state of utter bliss. For more features, see the Senate Pres. car review.
