Nigerians better together, division no option - VP Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said on Saturday that it was very important for Nigeria to remain as a nation than to  split into parts.

Speaking in Osogbo while delivering the eighth convocation lecture of the Osun State University, he said, “Rather than promoting division, Nigerians should continue to promote unity and togetherness.”

He emphasized the need for Nigeria to embrace merit over quota in appointments, and also invest in human development capital.

The Vice President said that President Muhammadu Buhari was doing everything possible to lift Nigerians out of poverty.

Osinbajo also said that the Buhari led-administration would continue to fight against corruption to move Nigeria forward.

He said that the menace was fighting back, but declared that its kicks would not deter government’s resolve to flush it.

In his remarks, Gov. Gboyega Oyetola urged the graduating students to be good ambassadors of the university wherever they found themselves.

Prof. Labode Popoola, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, in his speech, said that 49 students made First Class, while 670 had Second Class Upper.

He said that 892 students made Second Class Lower, 194 Third Class, while nine graduated with Pass degrees.

Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola, Mr Jim Ovia, CEO Zenith Bank, Mr Wale Babalakin, Chairman, University of Lagos Governing Council, and Mrs. Nike Okundaye, CEO Nike Gallery, bagged honorary degrees at the ceremony.(Thenation)
