Government Agencies Should Respect Citizens – Osinbajo


Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President has reportedly stated that all government agencies need to respect Nigerians by understanding that their primary function is to serve the country’s citizens.

 Disclosing this on Monday, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, while receiving a delegation of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) in town for the Council’s 70th Annual Meeting, Osinbajo stated that, “It is very important that we show respect for our citizens and show that we are concerned about them, that we are not just a regulatory body that feels that its role is just to be a policeman, and all of that.”

He noted that, “I think we must also show that we are responsible for the people that we serve and that we hold them in high esteem. It (WAEC certification) is almost like a birth certificate.”

He made it known that, “Everyone who has watched WAEC progress over the years would agree that WAEC is a huge part of our history as a nation. WAEC certification has that importance and it has been like that for 70 years. So, I think it is worthy of celebration and commendation, WAEC has done so very well through the years.”

He remarked that, “So, I congratulate you, the Nigerian team, and the WAEC Council, not just for being given the special privilege of hosting the 70th anniversary, but also because we are clearly the largest contributor and beneficiary and this has been so for 70 years.”
