Davos: Osinbajo sells Nigeria’s reforms


Buhari 4

By Ada Anioji 

The Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has taken the administration’s campaign for reform of the Nigerian Economy to the 2016 World Economic Forum, WEF.

Though he arrived late at the session and was only able to join in the discussions a third of the way through, on account of a late arriving aircraft, BizNews’ Alec Hogg remarks that ‘Osinbajo was comfortably the most impressive of the otherwise lacklustre panellists, including some adept deflection of questions about how Nigeria will cope with a collapse in State revenues after a plunging oil price.’

Among other contributions he made at the session, Osinbajo spoke about how the Nigerian ‘government is committed to fulfilling its pre-election ticket of fighting corruption by introducing highly transparent processes.’

He also displayed a reportedly ‘enlightened approach towards aggressively embracing technology to educate the continent’s most populous nation through for example, committing to train 500 000 teachers in the next few months through distance learning and to use mobile phones as learners’ new chalkboards.’
