Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has assured Nigerians of the administration’s commitment to implement its campaign promises immediately the National Assembly (NASS) passes the 2016 budget into law.
Osibanjo gave the indication on Wednesday while inaugurating the newly-constructed Ota township road in Ado-Odo/Ota Council Area of Ogun State. The inauguration of the road was part of the activities lined up to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the state. He also inaugurated the Aiyetoro township road in the Yewa north local government area.
“Our administration will fulfill its campaign promises with massive employment generation as the cornerstone.
“I want to assure the people that immediately the budget is passed into law, we will zoom into action and all our promises will be fulfilled. These promises would commence as soon as the 2016 budget is passed to law. We will train 500,000 volunteer teachers to boost the nation’s educational system.”
He said the government had mapped out plans to support artisans in the country with funds to help improve their businesses.
“We must not lose sight of the fact that it is the masses that voted for us and we must not let them down. We have plans for artisans and market women; they are already in our plans in the budget.
“Government will establish skill acquisition training for graduates to equip them for gainful employment while market women will be given soft loans to boost their businesses.”
The president who was also on a two-day working visit in the state to felicitate with the state on the occasion of its 40th anniversary, also commissioned the newly constructed Omida ultra-modern market in Abeokuta.
