Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, n Tuesday, received governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in his office at the Presidential Villa, telling them on the need to act fast in order to resolve teething problems facing the country.
The APC governors were on a felicitation visit to the Vice President as he recovers from a surgical operation carried out in July.
While welcoming the Governors, Prof. Osinbajo in a statement by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, expressed his appreciation for the visit and the good wishes.
The VP also commended the expertise of Nigerian doctors, and the availability of cutting-edge medical facilities existing in the country. But he regretted that doctors are restrained by regulations from advertising and as a result many people were unaware of the level of quality medical services available locally.
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 then agreed to engage the issues and others further with a view to bringing urgent resolution for the benefit of the Nigerian people.
According to the Vice President, “we all need to work together on these critical issues. We need to think through things, and we need to do it fast.”
Present at the meeting were Governors Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State; Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State; Simon Lalong of Plateau State; Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State; Muhammad Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State; Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara; Abubakar Sani-Bello of Niger State; Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State; Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State, and the deputy governor of Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe.
