Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has noted that Nigerians have never lacked ideas, but the time has come for the nation to transform brilliant ideas into reality by diligently following-up on plans and coming together to achieve objectives.
Speaking while receiving at the Presidential Villa, a delegation of Nigerian CEOs who attended the Indian Manufacturing Conclave-an industrial conference- last month in New Delhi, the vice president said what is needed in the country is the capacity to get things done.
“Almost all of us are certain about what the country needs to do but the critical problem is the capacity to get things done. What is important is what we do with all the ideas,” the Vice President said.
Prof. Osinbajo listened to the conference experiences from the trip shared by members of the delegation, including on different sectors and areas of the economy such as Power & Energy, ICT, Maritime, Financing, SMEs etc.
He commended the business leaders for their efforts and the visit to his office, adding that “Nigerians know what to do, but the time has come to really work on getting things done. The problem has been on how to really get things done.”
He called on all Nigerians in their different callings and endeavours to work together, adding that it is the intention of the Buhari presidency “to look for ways that the important sectors of our national life will work together, and also get key sectors to work together with the government.”
