Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday met privately with the 69 delegates from the Kaduna State branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has on Sunday night visited Kaduna state and met with delegates of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in a closed-door meeting. 

The Vice President who visited Kaduna to solicit the party delegate’s support and vote in the upcoming APC primary elections also explained the rationale behind his ambition to become the next president of Nigeria. 

Osinbajo explained that when President Muhammadu Buhari handed over power to him before one of his visits to London, he (Osinbajo ) asked the President whether to report directly to him, but the president responded that he (Osinbajo) is in charge.

The Vice President said during President Buhari’s time away from Nigeria, he was able to attend to complex and sensitive issues that showcased his capabilities to move the country forward.

Osinbajo said with his seven years of experience in governance, he will hit the ground running on his first day in office if he is elected as President come 2023.

He said he will not spend so much time studying how to govern since he is familiar with the system, unlike others.

Speaking on Agriculture, the Vice President said there is a need to break the Ministry of agriculture so that the agricultural system can work effectively; with a focus on infrastructure and other areas.

He also said there is a need to prioritise education in the country, adding that there must be a  paradigm shift and Nigeria must begin to run online education. He said the funding in the education sector is not enough and there is a need to improvise.

On socio-cultural challenges, the Vice President said the country must have a system that instantly responds to conflict.

According to him, Nigeria must have a social system that addresses the challenges of everyone.
