Vice-President Osinbajo calls for public support at maiden meeting of Remo Growth and Development Foundation
The Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinabjo has called on the public to support the government in its development programmes and infrastructural plans.
Osinbajo, an indigene of Ikenne-Remo alongside his wife Dolapo, was virtually present at the first Annual General Meeting of Remo Growth and Development Foundation (RemoGDF) in Iperu-Remo, Ogun State on Saturday, where he made the call for public support in adopting a project.
Although he was represented in Iperu by his Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring and Evaluation, Mr Babatunde Osibamowo, the Vice-President hailed the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi for the steps he has taken to support the government.
“This task is not for the government alone, but also that of every citizen in the country, to contribute in achieving our dream; in that context, groups like the RemoGDF come in handy,” Osinbajo was quoted by ThisDay Live.
“I congratulate the RGDF for empowering the youth, as empowering them is key to our future prosperity.
“I salute the Akarigbo (monarch) of Remo land for the establishment of the Akarigbo Corporate Council and for his leadership and clear vision for the development of the state.”
In his remarks, the Chairman of RemoGDF, Chief Tunji Lawal-Solarin, said that the group, established in 2018 with over 500 members, had remained committed to developing Remoland and turning it into a destination point in economic prosperity, and also, be a safe haven for all to dwell.
Lawal-Solarin said part of the achievements of the group was the construction of Passport Office in Sagamu, the provision of an electric transformer for residents of GRA, Sagamu, and the construction of Multi-door Courthouse/Alternative Dispute Resolution Centre within High Court, Makun, Sagamu.
