Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has assured that the Muhammadu Buhari presidency is committed to improving the life of Nigerians.
He gave the assurance while receiving a delegation from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
In a statement issued on Friday by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo said: “The critical thing is improving the life of the people generally and we are working as hard as possible to ensure that.
“It is a lot of work, especially at a time when the economy is not doing as well as it could.”
He also lauded the commitment of JICA for collaborating extensively with the Buhari administration and acknowledged the Agency support to Nigeria.
Osinbajo said the government is also focused on the Northeast, stating that rebuilding the region is of paramount concern and Japanese support would be welcomed alongside other local and international contributions in the effort.
In particular, he observed that the fallout of the insurgency in the area has created such humanitarian concerns including 49,000 orphans in Borno State.
“These are young children, some of them saw their parents killed,” he noted
