[dropcap]A[/dropcap]cting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, Tuesday delivered a strong speech in defense of Nigeria’s exceptionalism at the  palace of the Emir of Gusau, Alhaji Ibrahim Bello, during a one-day visit to Zamafara State.

“The message that l have is only to say that this country is one of the greatest countries in the world, there is no question at all about that. We see that in another ten years, probably we will be measuring with the 15th largest economies in the world, he said.

“When you look at the sheer size and the diversity of Nigeria, we have the potentials of becoming one of the truly great countries of the world and l think that with the hard-work that we are seeing and with the right leadership, leadership committed to the people, committed to delivering services to the people, we can really make a difference, we can become what God has purposed and planned for us to be.”

“Our country’s size is important and the diversity of our people and resources are important. But we must stay together to be able to reap the fruit of our size and the development of this country. We must remain united to reap the fruit.”

“There are many countries in Africa, some of them are not bigger than Zamfara State, infact many of them are not as big as Zamfara State and they are countries in Africa.”
