Osinbanjo launches Kaduna construction projects

13 January 2016, 19:59

Abuja - Deputy President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, pledged the All Progressive Congress-led administration was committed to meeting the needs of the people through its Change Agenda.

He was speaking in Kaduna at the ground-breaking of construction projects spearheaded by the state governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, whom Osinbajo commended for empowering the people of the state.

“When we talk of change, we are saying it is possible for government to meet the needs of the people, serving the people,” said Osinbajo at the launch of the two projects - a 2 000-unit residential housing scheme and a modern shopping mall.

He said these were evidence change “had truly come.”

“I want to emphasize that when we talk of change, what we are really saying is that it is possible for government to meet the needs of the people, that government is not just about going around in motorcades and looking important, but it is serving the people.”

He added, “One of the reasons why people “voted for us is because they believed in change and that we are able to provide that kind of leadership.”

He maintained the government’s stance against corruption.“Nigeria can be great if we manage our resources well, Nigeria can be great if we stop corruption. I am sure that many of you have seen that this government is serious about ending corruption.”

He said the government was serious about prosecuting those who believed that local resources could be plundered.

He commended the government of El Rufai for embarking on.


“The governor represents the change that is being talked about. Under the governor, Kaduna State will truly be great again.” – CAJ News
