Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has counseled Nigerians to exploit the diversity of the country for national development.
He made this statement during a toast at a dinner organised to mark 20 Years of Democracy in Nigeria ahead of the celebration slated for June 12 on Tuesday.
Osinbajo said that Nigeria’s strength lies on its multiplicity which had produced outstanding people in various fields of endeavour all over the world.
According to the VP; “We are known all over the world for our confidence; business acumen, great culture and traditions.
“These come as a result of one of our greatest asset which is our diversity in culture, diversity in language and diversity in faith.
“This diversity enriches all that we have.’’
President Buhari made a formal pronouncement of June 12 as Democracy Day one year ago.
