Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has admitted that a battle for the country’s heart and soul is underway.
During the presentation of the National Orientation Agency’s (NOA) five-year strategic plan (2021-2026) and assessment by select stakeholders from Ministries, Departments and Agencies, civil society, and development partners on Wednesday in Abuja, Osinbajo stated this.
He was represented by the Senior Special Assistant on Policy Research, Office of the Vice President, Chris Ngwodo.
“We are in the time of our history when the NOA by virtue of its mandate must come to the fore. There is a struggle for the heart and soul of this country and a struggle to change the destiny of our society as already observed.
“We are facing different challenges: the challenge of expanding the cycles of inclusion; the challenge of deepening democracy; the challenge of forging social cognition; and the challenge of expanding opportunity for a young population. These challenges all border on issues of state legitimacy and the renewal of the social contract,” he said.
