Nigerians Deserve Fair And Equal Treatment – Osinbajo


Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President has reportedly made it known that Nigerians should not see ethnic diversity as a point of difference, submitting that all people regardless of ethnicity and faith deserves to be treated equally and fairly.

The Vice President reportedly stated this while speaking at the conferment of a chieftaincy title, The Oduma (Lion) of Auchi on the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Prince Clem Agba, by the Otaru of Auchi, HRH Alhaji Aliru Momoh, Ikelebe III.

According to him, “Our country needs men and women who see and understand that our ethnic diversities is not a point of difference, men and women who understand that all people regardless of ethnicity and faith deserves to be treated equally, fairly and justly.”

He maintained that, “This is where the significance of the traditional institution comes to the fore because they are regarded and rightly so as the custodians of these values and noblest ideals of the people.”

He disclosed that, “Auchi where I did his National Youth Service Corps symbolised what Nigeria should be due to the fact that it accommodates everyone irrespective of ethnic or religious background like in the case of Agba who is from Uzanu in Etsako East but found a home in Auchi.”

He noted that, “The Auchi Kingdom has its rich and special history. The celebrated innovation and enterprise of its sons and daughters have brought development and prominence to this kingdom and Edo State.”

He admitted that,  “Auchi is, therefore, in a real sense, not just the microcosm of Nigeria, but also one of our finest values of mutuality and community.”
