What Keeps Me Up At Night Has To Do With Extreme Poverty-V.P Yemi Osinbajo
The vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has expressed his thoughts on poverty, adding that it is the number one issue that keeps him up at night. He made this confession at a dinner and interactive session with Faculty Members, Harvard Business School on Tuesday in Lagos, where he said;
“I think what keeps me up at night has to do with extreme poverty. The issue is that the largest number of those who voted for us are very poor. “The promise that government makes to them is that their lives will be better and obviously they are looking at their lives being better in the shortest possible time. “I will like to see Nigeria being an industrialised nation in the next 10 years; a very strong middle class and most people living above the poverty line.’’
He also added most of the policies made by the government were done in consideration of those at the bottom level of the pyramid, adding that focus was being placed on agriculture.
