Osinbajo gives reasons he values transparency, social justice

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has articulated his personal commitment to the virtues of integrity, transparency and social justice which are also virtues exhorted in the different faiths and religions in the country.

A release from the Office of the Vice President said he stated this during an interaction with a group of Harvard Business School students who visited him at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He said that governmental institutions must be strong enough to compel individual behaviour in a way that advances the common good, spirituality and commitment to such values as social justice and transparency are important.

Talking about Nigeria and its perception in the international community, Prof. Osinbajo explained to the postgraduate students some of whom are Nigerians, that it is in understanding the size of Nigeria that the international community can better appreciate the enormity and complexity of some of the country’s challenges.

Responding to the question about some inaccurate characterization of Nigeria in sections of the international community, the Vice President said “It is important to constantly engage the international community to show them how we feel about the stereotypes. It comes down to the work we do as government and people about the characterization.
