Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that in the past eight years, the Federal Government under the All Progressives Congress (APC) embarked on the largest investments in infrastructure and agriculture in Nigeria’s history.
A statement yesterday in Abuja by his spokesman Laolu Akande said the Vice President spoke on Saturday night at the APC convention at the Eagles Square in Abuja.
Osinbajo spoke ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari and joined him yesterday to witness the swearing-in of the newly-elected National Working Committee (NWC) officers of the party.
The Vice President noted that the vision and determination of President Buhari to significantly improve the economy, enhance security, and fight corruption remained firm.
He said the Federal Government under APC remained committed to creating more jobs for Nigerians, increase access to healthcare, and build a united, strong nation, among others.
“We will actualise the pledge of universal health coverage for all. We will continue, undaunted, in the task of building infrastructure that will be the foundation of the great modern economy of our dreams.
“We will continue in the task of building a strong, united, fair and just Nigeria; a Nigeria where every young man and woman can find opportunities to work and prosper.
“We must focus on the objective of taking 100 million out of poverty in this decade, as promised by this government under the leadership of President Buhari.
“We will not relent, we will not look back and we will not falter. By the grace of God, this party, our party, the APC, will, in the coming decades, lead Nigeria and its great peoples to its manifest destiny.
“Our eyes must remain fixed on three things: one – jobs; two – jobs and three- jobs.”
