Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will be focusing on employment generation and infrastructure development in his second term in office.

This is coming as the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington yesterday disclosed that Microsoft Corporation, the world’s biggest software manufacturer, chose to build its second development hub in Lagos because the corporation’s smartest software engineer is a Nigerian.

The vice president said this yesterday at the opening ceremony of the USA Fair 2019, a trade and investment expo exclusively for Nigerian and American businesses in energy, agriculture, aviation, ICT and others, organised by the US Foreign Commercial Service.

He stressed that one of the ways to generate employment is to provide the infrastructure that will push the economy. According to Osinbajo who was represented by the Minister of Trade and Investment, Mr. Okechukwu Enelamah, the federal government had spent over N3.5 trillion in the last two years for infrastructural development, adding that the government was determined to grow the economy in partnership with the private sector and other stakeholders.

He debunked the reports that Ghana and Nigeria are rivals or competing for the economic domination of West Africa. He argued that both countries can develop together for the economic benefit of the West African sub-region.

“If we cooperate together, we could actually build a greater West Africa and Africa for the good of our people,” he said.
