Osinbajo advocates reduction of Govt. Size
The Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo has said that the country needs to hold a national debate to check the expense and the cost which it runs.
He said this on Friday in a webinar which was organised by Emmanuel Chapel. The theme of the webinar was ‘Economic Stability beyond COVID-19.’
The Vice President also went on to say that it might be quite difficult to do this but it is something that must be done at a point in time to ensure effective running of activities in the country.
Osinbajo had said this on the basis that the the country might be using funds that are meant for its development to service overheads as they seem to take up a larger part of the country’s revenue.
Osinbajo noted that this might be a hard task as the peole who might vote for this decision will be reluctant to vote themselves out.
The webinar saw the attendance of Muhammad Sanusi and was moderated by Prof Konyinsola Ajayi and Dr Chinny Ogunro.
