It's the Will of God We are Here at this Time - Pastor Yemi Osinbajo Speaks on the Economy
The Redeemed Christian Church of God pastor said the N500billion Social Investment programmes of the President Muhammadu Buhari presidency is a means to energize the economy and deal with issues of poverty in the country.
He said it is very interesting the situation the nation finds itself, noting that there is great hope. Speaking when he received a delegation of the Muslim Lawyers Association at the Presidential Villa, Prof. Osinbajo said the social investment programmes would train people, create jobs, feed school children from homegrown farming and grant soft loans to traders, artisans and market women.
According to him, “we are here at this time because that is the will of God to deliver the goods and do the right things for this country. It is very interesting the situation we find ourselves, but there is great hope.”
The Vice President said both the president and himself are committed to a new united Nigeria, populated by a ‘New Tribe’ that would be united across otherwise divisive lines be it ethnic or religious.
He added that Nigerians must fight corruption which is responsible for the current situation of things in the country, stressing that if it is not challenged, corruption would worsen the situation.
