The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), on Monday, said that with the commitment shown by the present administration, the best time to turn Nigeria’s economy around is now.
The vice president said this during policy dialogue at the ongoing 22nd Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja.
He said “we have the best opportunity for now to turn this country around; I think that without a doubt, we have some of the most committed people now.
“The president is committed, the president is honest, obviously one that can be trusted and relies on very competent people he has put together.
“I believe that in taking this important opportunity for the country, it can only be with the active collaboration of the private sector”.
Prof. Osinbajo added that everyone had a role to play and all must come together to make the nation work.
He declared that every member of the president’s cabinet was determined to ensure that they turned the country around for good.
“There is determination to incrementally make things happen day-by-day.
“Sometimes, we may not be getting it right, sometimes it may be wrong and Nigerians are extremely engaging and they tell you that you can’t go wrong for too long”.
He expressed gratitude that the interaction was taking place “because this is not about anyone or any government; it is about our country.
“All of us should commit to working together to make these happen for our country”.
VP Osinbajo noted that the administration initiated the N-power project to bring in 500,000 graduates to work in the areas of teaching, public health and extension farming.
