Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged Nigerians to do what is right even at this difficult moment in the country’s history.
Speaking on Tuesday at a meeting with the Australian Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary, African Branch, Mr Mathew Neuhaus, Osinbajo reassured Nigerians that “although the nation may be passing through difficult times, the Buhari presidency would ensure that the Nigerian people benefit from the resources of the nation”.
“It is a difficult time, but we think it is an excellent opportunity to do right by the people so that our people are able to get the benefit of the nation’s resources,” Professor Osinbajo said.
“The flexible foreign exchange policy just recently put in place would encourage foreign investment.
“We are looking forward to the benefits of the new foreign exchange policy,” a statement by his spokesman, Laolu Akande quoted him as saying.
The Vice President commended the Australian government for its “excellent support” in the fight against insurgents in the Northeast. He observed that while significant progress has been recorded in militarily downgrading Boko Haram, the other challenge now was overcoming the ideology that motivates terrorist activities.
