Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has reaffirmed the federal government’s commitment towards making the country better for Nigerians.

 

 

 

Speaking at a Virtual Presidential Policy Dialogue Session organised by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), the Vice President said that while the Buhari-led administration is focusing on key areas like agriculture, housing, manufacturing, they will also expand to cultivation and agro processing.

 

 

 

He said; 

 

 

 

“We are to create jobs and boost our national housing programme. We would be intentional in the support of manufacturers in using our local raw materials. We are seriously engaging the use of cement in building our roads, as it will be cheaper for us and more durable.

 

“We are targeting electrification of five million households with solar power, and we are supporting SMEs, especially in the pharmaceuticals to enhance the production of personal protective equipment.”
