A former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Gbenga Daniel, has praised Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for his in-depth knowledge of Nigeria’s challenges.
Chief Gbenga Daniel spoke with State House correspondents after a private meeting with Osinbajo on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja where he opened up about what he has seen since he defected from the PDP to the APC.
He said: “You must be aware that I and a number of my colleagues recently joined the party; and part of what we have decided to do was to go round; we have seen the party, President and quite a number of the leaders. It is also incumbent; in fact, we were to see the vice president after the president; but we didn’t have the opportunity up until now; so, it is purely a courtesy call.
“We are quite excited that from what the vice president said, he has a clear grasp of the challenges and we are persuaded that efforts are being put in place.
“It is a very difficult period in the history of our nation and all hands must be deck.’’
“When a large section of the populace is gainfully employed, you now will be able to isolate people who are sabotaging and who have other sinister motives. “But to the extent that we have not successfully been able to tackle unemployment, is for the main preoccupation of any administration,’’ he added.
