Buhari’s Government is for the People – Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is purely for the Nigerian people and is always open to dialogue on all issues, The Nation reports.
He made the remark when a delegation of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) visited him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Osinbajo, in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, said: “We are here for the people, if not for the people, we will not be here. We got here by the grace of God and the votes of the man on the street who felt it’s time for change.”
He said it is important for the Buhari presidency to talk and dialogue, adding “even if we disagree, we must still talk. The reason is that this government itself is for the people.”
Osinbajo said nobody is in government by inheritance, adding “we are here today because the people chose us and that is the reason we must be prepared to listen to issues that concern Nigerians.”
