Vice-President Professor Yemi Osinbajo said investing in technology is key to achieving economic growth.
According to the Senior Special Assistant to the President in the Vice President’s Office of Information and Publicity, Laolu Akande on Tuesday, Nigeria’s second most powerful figure made the revelation while receiving a delegation from Odu’a Investment at the Presidential Palace in Abuja. .
While praising the conglomerate’s legacy and vision born decades ago, Professor Osinbajo said, “Legacy and history have a strong pull, but what the future calls for may be even greater and that is why we must invest in technology.”
He stressed the need for technology-driven investment as a panacea for development.
He added, “If the private sector is running business, it is much better because it will generate more profits.”
He further noted the success of Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG), saying that its private sector-driven model brings the country a lot of revenue.
