Osinbajo Restates Government’s Commitment To Nigeria’s Unity And Growth
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has come out to defend accusations that the President Buhari led federal government is not doing enough to stop the indiscriminate killings in several parts of the country.
Osinbajo also denied any notion that the current administration in the country is nursing any idea of Islamizing the country, stressing that the government remains committed to the welfare of all Nigerians irrespective of religious, political or ethnic affiliations.
The vice-president made this known Tuesday night at a stakeholders’ meeting in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, in response to allegations that the administration was pursuing an agenda of Islamisation.
“I am not just a politician. As a matter of fact, I’m also a priest and I am a Christian, a born again Christian. Because I’m a born again Christian, my destiny is not determined by any man but by God who I serve.
“Let me assure you that under no circumstance whatsoever will I give up my faith or refuse to stand up for my faith. You can take that to the bank. Even the position that I currently occupy, I did not ask for it and I’m prepared to leave it on short notice. It doesn’t mean anything.
