The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), has assured the masses that the Muhammadu Buhari administration will strive to deliver on its campaign promises which include free meals for primary and secondary students as well as employment for the youths.
The VP made this statement on Saturday at Ikenne, his home town where he was the Special Guest of Honour at the 39th Ereke Day celebration, an annual festival organised in Ikenne, Ogun State, as platform for addressing the town’s developmental challenges.
In his statement, VP Osinbajo said the only problem of the president is to fix all the problems facing the country today adding that the APC party will not rest until all their campaign promises are fulfilled.
He cited corruption and stealing as some of the reasons why things had gone wrong in the country, adding that time has come now to fix all that have gone wrong.
In his words he said, “we have to deal with unemployment of young people; we have to deal with infrastructure; we have to deal with bad roads; we have to restore power, the challenges are many.
“But I want to assure you that every single day that President Buhari spends in Abuja; that I spend in Abuja, we will work hard to achieve the promises we have made.
“You can be sure of an honest and transparent government; you can be sure of hard work.
“You can be sure that everything we promised, we will do.”
He ended by encouraging the indigenes of Ikenne to follow the footsteps of their elders such as late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, former Nigerian nationalist and Premier of the old Western Region.
