Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has said that Nigeria needs to act fast on critical issues like the economy and the ongoing strike action of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
According to a statement made available by the media aide to the Vice President, Lolu Akande, the VP said this as he received the All Progressives Congress governors on Tuesday in his office at the Presidential Villa on a felicitation visit as he recovered from surgery done last month.
While welcoming the governors, Osinbajo expressed his appreciation for the visit and the good wishes.
During the brief interaction that followed at the meeting, important national issues were also raised especially regarding the economy and the ASUU strike.
The Vice President and the governors were said to have agreed to engage these and other pressing issues further to bring urgent resolution for the benefit of the Nigerian people.
“We all need to work together on these critical issues. We need to think through things, and we need to do it fast,” Osinbajo was quoted to have said.
