Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday hosted the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group who had come to pledge their loyalty and support.
The National Coordinator of the campaign group, Usman Ibrahim, extolled Mr Osinbajo for his commitment to leadership and promotion of national unity.
Mr Ibrahim said Osinbajo’s performance in office, his excellence, humility, loyalty, industry, professionalism and dedication to duty were enviable.
He pledged the loyalty and support of the group for the actualisation of the objectives of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
“We appreciate you for your sacrifices and commitment to the actualisation of the `Next Level’ agenda, especially your commitment towards improving the welfare of the downtrodden through the platforms of “Tradermoni’’ and “Marketmoni’’, programmes.
In his remarks to his guests, Mr Osinbajo assured that “this country will be stronger and greater.”
He said that a lot of the security challenges being experienced in Nigeria today will be resolved in due course.
“We must never relent in ensuring that we keep to the ideals of the country and we don’t lose sight of what we are trying to achieve here.
“The president has always remained steadfast and focused in resolving the problems of the country beginning with security.
“He is a steady hand; he is unflappable, he is not panicky, he is focused and looking at the security issues every day, and trying to advance the best possible solutions,’’ Mr Osinbajo said.
“People who suggest that the country breaks up, whatever may be the reason for their views, are certainly not correct and we must say so to them at every turn.
“The unity of this country is important for all of the different ethnicities, religions, everybody. Whatever the group or ideology, unity is important for every one of us.
“It is wrong for a country that is the largest economy in Africa and definitely going to be one of the largest economies in the world, to start thinking in terms of fragmenting itself.
“If you fragment, the problems are going to multiply, poverty will multiply,’’ the vice-president added.
