Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo has said a four-
year tenure is too small for anyone in public
office to deliver because there are many plans of
things to deliver that will take time.
Osinbajo said this in an interview at the Financial Times Nigeria
Summit held in Lagos.
According to the transcript of the interview made available to
journalists on Saturday, the Vice President said,
“I think that for anyone who is in office, it (four years)
would be too small because obviously, you have all manner
of plans and things to deliver. But my take is that the
moment you have the right people and you put the right
structures in place, you can do a lot, and I think we have
been blessed with an incredibly good team,”
He said the present administration wanted to farther ahead in
terms of manufacturing. He however described them as
infrastructure constraints that cannot be developed overnight. This,
he said, was why the government was investing heavily in
infrastructure; rail, road and power.
“This is the significant part of the investment that we are doing;
concessioning the Lagos-Kano to General Electric, the narrow
gauge, developing the standard gauge is important in terms of just
movement of goods and all that. A lot of these initiatives would be
a great help in moving goods,” he added.
