Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said Nigerians have all it takes to make the country remarkable.
On Tuesday, he communicated this in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media Publicity, Laolu Akande.
The statement revealed that the vice president commented at the public presentation of a book entitled ‘Politics that Works – What Schools and Seminars won’t Teach You about Winning Elections’, co-authored by Babafemi Ojudu and Alex James.
In the statement titled ‘Osinbajo to Nigerians: Don’t give up, our challenges have solutions’, Osinbajo called on Nigerians to come together and solve the challenges the nation is facing.
According to him, “Our generational challenges have the generational solutions, let’s face the issues and solve them, whether we are in government or planning to get into government.
“We mustn’t give up, and we mustn’t keep looking back. The challenges of today are meant for those of us who are here and alive today. And they are intended to be solved by young people, and as I always say, there is no better time to be alive.
“This is the best time in Nigeria to be young. Those who are young today have the best opportunity ever.”
“I think this country needs the best minds if you look at the variety of talents that we have.
“We have everything that it takes for a great country, but it is the coming together of like minds, coming together of people who agree on the same things, old or young.
“I don’t think we should divide ourselves along these lines because this country can be great but we need that coming together of the best minds whether male or female,” he stated.
Away from the vice president’s opinion, do you think Nigeria can be any better? What hope do you have in the face of the rising inflation, security challenges, secession calls and the recent clamour for zoning?
