Professor Osinbajo on Wednesday made this statement when he received members of SouthWest Think-Tank under the leadership of Otunba Gbenga Daniel, former Governor of the State.
The Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has stated that the Nigeria will surely overcome the problems and realize its potentials especially if the people who share progressive views keep on working together despite the current challenges the country is facing.
According to the Vice President, “I am very hopeful that this country will truly realise its potentials and I believe that all of us working together can make that happen. If the progressive ideas are put forward and we focus, then this country indeed will work.
“The country is ours, we should make it happen, there will be many challenges but I think that we must be prepared to face it until progressive views of improved welfare for the citizens that we represent, eventually prevail.”
The Vice President noted that “the best way out of where we are today is to have a massive plan for investment because that is really how to create opportunities for jobs, which is what we are hoping to achieve with the Economic Sustainability Plan, creating opportunities through the solar investments with 5 million connections, the Farms for Jobs Project and the Social Housing Scheme.”
The former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, in return said the visit was to identify with and support the common cause of Prof. Osinbajo whom he described as “intelligent, hardworking, articulate” and a very proud son of the Southwest region.
He added; “we want to let you know that you are appreciated, we are proud of you and the work that you are doing, we know it is not an easy job. We also want to let you know that we want to join you in nation-building, if there is anything, any assignment you want us to undertake, we are at your service, that is why we are here.”
