The Nigerian Vice president, Yemi Osibanjo has vowed that only the leaders who are prepared to bring the nation together can solve the problem of Nigeria.
Speaking to the media, he outlined that proactive leaders are the solution of the Nigerian problem and urged for unity amongst all Nigerians.
In his words, he 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.
“You should know that you are always in my prayers, because I believe that your role is crucial, not just for the development of this state, but for the whole country.
“Today, you cannot relegate traditional rulers because of the exposure and education of those who occupy that position.”
