Osinbajo: Nigeria To Work With Other Countries To Improve Economic Opportunities by presidency: 6:57pm On Jan 21
OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT
PRESS RELEASE

NIGERIA WILL WORK CLOSELY WITH OTHER COUNTRIES TO INCREASE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES - OSINBAJO

The Buhari administration will be happy to work closely with other countries who share similar socio-economic objectives in order to increase economic opportunities and healthcare delivery to citizens, according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.

Prof. Osinbajo stated this on Tuesday when he received, on a courtesy visit to the Presidential Villa, Ambassador Dato’ Ku Jaafar Ku Shaari, Secretary General of the D-8 Organisation for Economic Cooperation.

The D-8 top official is in Nigeria as the Health & Social Protection Programme of the group is being established in the country.

According to the Vice President, while addressing the Secretary General “I want to congratulate you on the signing of the partnership agreement for the Health and Social Protection Programme. This is important for us and for all D-8 countries.

“We are all emerging economies, the whole question around health care, human capacity development is crucial for us, and I think it is appropriate that we devote the time and resources like we are currently doing.”

Speaking further on the focal areas of cooperation of the D-8, Prof. Osinbajo said, “We are hopeful that you will succeed in deepening the impact of the focal areas of trade, industry, energy and tourism, in all of our countries. We are happy that, working with the other countries, we can achieve our economic objectives.

“So, we are certainly looking forward to continue to work with the D-8. We are committed to the D-8 and expect that the forthcoming summit will expand the scope of work and deepen the achievements of the D-8.

Earlier in his remark, Ambassador Dato’ Ku Jaafar Ku Shaari who thanked Nigeria for hosting the secretariat of the D-8 Health and Social Protection Programme, said implementing programmes on health and poverty alleviation was key to the agenda of the organization.

He also spoke on the D-8’s forthcoming summit in Bangladesh later in the year where a new road map and plan of action for the actualization of the organization’s targets will be launched.

The D-8 countries include Bangladesh, Egypt, Nigeria, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Pakistan and Turkey with a combined population of approximately 1 billion covering an area of 7.6 million square kilometres and, 5% of world land area.

This synergy among the D-8 countries is highly needed at this point in time. As usual the VP is spot on on this issue.

I hope they are paying attention to the coronavirus outbreak in China? We import almost everything from China thus, this useless government should be taking proactive measures to curb the spread of the virus and not when it arrives here, they start running up and down.

If you do not fix electricity you are only fooling yourselves.

No country was developed by importing generator sets and using them as the mainstay of electricity production.

Bubu will sabotage the effort. We need all Fulanis gone. They have nothing to offer. We must separate from the core North by fire by force.
