Nigeria has a unique opportunity now to become a great country with the kind of leader that is currently at the helm of affairs, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said.
Osinbajo said this on Thursday when he received a delegation of his Law Faculty classmates with whom he attended the University of Lagos from
1975 to 1978.
The Vice President urged Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari, “a man who is honest and whose only desire is to make Nigeria go forward and become a great nation.
“We should support such a leader, he said that in spite of the twists and turns in governance, the country has a unique opportunity to make good progress now.
“The President and I are determined to give a good account of ourselves and more importantly ensure that the country makes good progress.”
Expressing appreciation for the visit by his classmates, Osinbajo said “it is very rare that after so many years, we can still reunite. I am really honored and humbled.”
Earlier, Retired Justice Chinyelu Anigbodu who spoke on behalf of the delegation that included former petroleum minister, Odein Ajumogobia (SAN), congratulated the Vice President, noting that his election was a precious gift.
Members of the Vice President’s class at the meeting included legal practitioners from across the country and beyond, including from Cameroon.
