Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has lamented that Nigeria lacked proactive leaders who can unite the country in the face of its current challenges.
The Vice President spoke in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Mr. Laolu Akande
According to Akande, Osinbajo spoke during a courtesy visit to the palace of Oniru of Iruland, Oba Abdulwasiu Lawal, who celebrated his first coronation anniversary.
Osunbajo said: “Our country needs all the leaders, the best leaders, the most proactive leaders, leaders prepared to bring the country together. Lagos is a microcosm of Nigeria, everybody is here, if things work out well here, things will be okay in the country. I am sure your role here is that of someone who brings together communities not just Yorubas, but everybody. And I can see that from your choice of chiefs, you have gone to other parts, and I think this is the attitude of great leaders.”
The vice president prayed for a successful reign for the traditional ruler.
