I don’t sleep at night due to extreme poverty in Nigeria – Osinbajo
Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said that he is always up at night due to the thought of extreme poverty ravaging the country.
He stated this at a question and answer session of a dinner and Interactive Session with Faculty Members, Harvard Business School (HBS), an event that held in Lagos on Tuesday.
The question and answer session was moderated by Hakeem Bello-Osagie, chairman of Metis Capital Partners, while Srikant Datar, Professor of Business Administration (HBS), and Bayo Ogunlesi, a Nigerian investment banker, featured alongside Osinbajo at the session.
Osinbajo said, “I think what keeps me up at night has to do with extreme poverty; the issue is that the largest number of those who vote for us are the very poor.
“The promises that government makes to them is that their lives will be better and obviously they are looking at their lives being better in the shortest possible time.
