Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday, August 29, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, received a delegation of the Buhari-Osinbajo Solidarity Front (BOSF) led by its Convener, Mr Olawale Badmus.
Badmus, who spoke with State House correspondents after the meeting, said it was an exciting time with the vice president.
He said the delegation came to congratulate Osinbajo and President Muhammadu Buhari on their victory in the 2019 presidential election and also to discuss the welfare of Nigerians.
“We discussed a lot most especially about engaging our people; how they can feel belonged; how we can do more on the TraderMoni; how we can do more on MarketMoni and so many other social investment programmes that the government has put in place to help the poor and the common man.
“The vice president was glad and happy and he promised that the government will go further from where they are now.
“He also reminded us of the promise of the president when he talked about lifting 100 million people out of poverty and so many areas where the government is concerned about–the girl-child education, and a lot of people that are out of school.
“I am impressed; and we, as a group are impressed; that is why we actually supported the reelection of the administration.
“Generally, I think it is more of engaging the people once again; we wish the government to go deeper as the government is concerned about poor people.
“Most of the programmes of this government are about the less-privileged; the downtrodden, the extremely poor people. We just wish it goes deeper,’’ he said.
Badmus, however, said that some people were complaining that the welfare schemes had not reached them and urged the Federal Government to do more in that regard.
