Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said for the country to overcome its many challenges, there’s the need to start asking honest questions, and kickstart conversation around national transformation.
The vice president made the statement during the official launch of a report by ‘Imagine Nigeria’, an initiative of the Federal Government implemented in conjunction with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in Abuja on Wednesday.
The initiative which is meant to exploit great possibilities for the country, comprised of a high-level panel, and supported by a steering committee with members such as Osinbajo; Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed; Chief of Staff to the President of Nigeria, Ibrahim Gambari and Minister of State for Budget and National Planning of Nigeria, Clem Agba, among others.
Speaking at the event, Osinbajo said the goal of the initiative is to find out what it takes to make the country great.
“The ultimate objective is to answer the question ‘what would it take to transform Nigeria?’ It is a process of reflection and discussion by all Nigerians especially the younger ones on what the future of our country should look like.
“Imagine Nigeria hopes to stimulate interest and attention around issues of innovation, green economy, trust, leadership and framing a more positive national narrative,” he said.
