“The Critical Pillar Of Buhari’s Presidency Is Transparency” – VP Osinbajo
Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, said on Monday that a critical pillar of the Buhari presidency is transparency, especially in the extractive industry.
“It is important for us that we handle our resources with transparency and good governance,” he told a delegation of the global body, Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), during a meeting at the Presidential Villa Abuja.
The Minister of State for Budget & Planning, and the former Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI), Mrs Zainab Ahmed, was also in attendance.
“One of the objectives that we have set for ourselves is to ensure that we are transparent and able to handle our resources well.
“If we (as a nation) had handled our resources better, with transparency and good governance, we would not find ourselves were we are now,” Osinbajo said
According to him, as a nation, “we have learnt our lessons,” and going forward the government will work transparently and generate more revenues.
