Nigeria has a unique opportunity now to become a great country with President Muhammadu Buhari at the helm of affairs, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said Thursday.
Mr. Osinbajo said this while receiving at the Presidential Villa, a delegation of his Law Faculty classmates with whom he attended the University of Lagos between 1975 and 1978.
He called on Nigerians to support President Buhari, whom he described as “a man who is honest and whose only desire is to make Nigeria go forward and become a great nation”.
Mr. Osinbajo said despite 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 a good progress,” he said.
The vice president expressed appreciation for the visit.
Earlier, retired Justice Chinyelu Anigbodu, who spoke on behalf of the delegation that included former foreign affairs minister, Odein Ajumogobia, congratulated the vice president, noting that his election “is a precious gift to us”.
Members of the vice president’s class at the meeting included legal practitioners from across Nigeria, and Cameroon. They included serving and retired justices, notable law teachers and lawyers.
