As Nigerians groan under the weight of economic hardships, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), has said that the full impact of a positive change anticipated by the citizenry may not materialize until 2018.
He made the disclosure during an interview with journalists after a church programme in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Sunday.
Mr. Osinbajo stressed that the Muhammadu Buhari administration is “focused and determined to ensure this country is put on the right track”.
He said the government was aware a lot of Nigerians had begun to doubt the ‘Change’ mantra of the administration.
“There are lots of people who will say where is the change they promised?” he said. “People will condemn and shout, but we are very focused, calm and extremely confident that God is on our side and this country will not be the same”.
He, however, indicated that the full impact of the change may take a couple of years, until 2018.
“In another couple of years, we will see the difference”, he said.
“All of us have a part to play in the change. Nigerians must be patriotic in our dealings and daily activities. We should be committed to the nation”, said Vice President Osinbajo.
