Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday, June 22, 2015, called on Nigerians to be patient and keep faith with the Federal Government to enable it bring about the desired ‘permanent’ change in the country.

Osinbajo spoke to State House correspondents on his first day in office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He challenged Nigerians to show understanding on what the government needed to do for the general good of the society.

The VP said change is not an easy task but pledged that as leaders they would set examples for all citizens to follow to achieve the desired change.

“Change is not going to be an easy process. So, there will be a great deal of patience that is required and understanding of what we need to do.

“And we are going to try to bring about permanent change; it also means that people are also going to change, that the people will also change.

“But, I understand clearly that it is the leadership that must set the example and we are prepared to do that and we will do that,’’ he said.

Osinbajo said the nation needed straightforward leaders like President Muhammadu Buhari and expressed the readiness of the government to fulfill its campaign promises to Nigerians.
