Although the Federal Government is committed to ensuring the current hardship faced by Nigerians is alleviated, the full impact of a positive change of government may not materialise until 2018, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo hinted on Sunday.
Mr. Osinbajo, during an interview with journalists after a church programme in Abeokuta, the Ogun State Capital, said the Muhammadu Buhari administration is “focused and determined to ensure this country is put on the right track.”
He said the government was aware a lot of Nigerians had become sceptical of the ‘Change’ mantra of the administration.
“There are lots of people who will say where is the change they promised,” he said. “People will condemn and shout, but we are very focused, calm and extremely confident that God is on our side and this country will not be the same.”
He, however, indicated that the full impact of the change may take a couple of years, until 2018.
“In another couple of years, we will see the difference,” he said.
“All of us have a part to play in the change. Nigerians must be patriotic in our dealings and daily activities. We should be committed to the nation,” said the vice president whose administration has come under heavy criticism from Nigerians for the handling of the economy. -PT
