Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday 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, who spoke to State House correspondents on his first day in office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, challenged Nigerians to be ready for what government would do for the general good of the society.
According to him, change is not an easy task but pledged that as leaders they will set examples for all citizens to follow to achieve the desired permanent change.
“Change is not going to be an easy process. So, there will be a great deal of patience that is required and a lot of 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.’’
President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Osinbajo were initially operating from Defence House in Wuse II, Abuja, since their inauguration due to renovation works at the Presidential Villa.
