Vice President Osinbajo statement at the 2-day Exco-Legislature retreat came at the point when thousands of Npower volunteers batch A and B has been thrown back to the street. Most of them are now at home without job waiting for alternative, the small stipend they are being paid has been stopped. This may cause chaos and civil unrest if such move is not mitigated.
According to VP Osinbajo remarks, Our nation has millions of extremely poor people, Covid-19 pandemic has worsened unemployment & poverty. We have huge deficits in infrastructure, many children out of school. We'll be callous & irresponsible if we don't come together.
we have to work together to sort out these grave life threatening problems our people have to confront everyday. The dogmatic emphasis on procedural niceties is a luxury we cannot afford. It's time to Focus on what we "ve been elected or appointed to do: the people's welfare"
