Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has urged all Nigerians to set aside ethnic and religious sentiments and join hands with the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to build a better Nigeria.

Prof. Osinbajo stated this on Saturday shortly after casting his vote, alongside his wife, Dolapo, at the VGC Polling unit, Lagos State, for the Governorship and State Assembly elections.

In a brief chat with the media, the Vice President, who celebrated his 62nd birthday on Friday, March 8, was asked about “the greatest gift he would want Nigerians to give him for this birthday.”

In response, the VP said, “One thing I would like very much is for all of us to work together towards building a great country. I think we all have what it takes to make this country truly great.

“And the greatest gift would be all of us working together, across tribes, across faith and the entire Nation coming together to work with President Buhari and the government to achieve the very best that we can.”

Prof. Osinbajo noted that he was pleased with the conduct of the elections at the polling unit thus far.
