Nigeria has a unique opportunity now to become a great country with the kind of leader that is currently at the helm of affairs.
This view was expressed on Thursday by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, while receiving at the Presidential Villa, a delegation of his Law Faculty class mates with whom he attended the University of Lagos between 1975-1978.
He called on 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.”
Calling on Nigerians to keep supporting the President, the Vice President said “we should support such a leader,” adding that despite the twists and turns in governance, the country has a unique opportunity to make good progress now.
According to him, “the president and I are determined to give a good account of ourselves and more importantly ensure that the country makes a good progress.”
Expressing a deep-felt appreciation for the visit by his class mates, Prof. Osinbajo told them “it is very rare that after so many years, we can still reunite. I am really honored and humbled.”
Earlier, retired Justice Chinyelu Emeka K. Anigbodu who spoke on behalf of the delegation that included former federal minister, Odein Ajumogobia, SAN, congratulated the Vice President, noting that his election “is a precious gift to us.”
The members of the Vice President’s class at the meeting included legal practitioners from across the country and beyond, including from Cameroon. They are made up of Justices serving and retired, notable law teachers and lawyers.
