Osinbajo urges partnership of progressive ideas for better Nigeria
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said Nigeria’s challenges could easily be surmounted if people with progressive views work together for the betterment of the country.
He made the submission when he received members of Imodoye (knowledge is valuable), a South West think-tank, led by former Governor Gbenga Daniel of Ogun State.
The leader of the delegation had said they were in the Presidential Villa to support Osinbajo, whom he described as “intelligent, hardworking and articulate.”
Furthermore, the Vice President submitted: “I am very hopeful that this country will truly realise its potentials if all of us work together. If the progressive ideas are put forward and we focus, this nation would work.
“The country is ours. We should make it happen. There will always be challenges, but we would be better if progressive views of improved welfare for the citizens that we represent prevail.”
On ongoing efforts, Osinbajo remarked: “The best way out of where we are today is to have a massive plan for investment. That is really how to create jobs, which is what we are hoping to achieve with the Economic Sustainability Plan, as well as creating opportunities through the solar investments with five million connections, the Farms for Jobs Project and the Social Housing Scheme.”
He reiterated that the welfare of the people and progress of the country remained the priority of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
