I Value Transparency, Social Justice – Osinbajo

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says he places high value on the virtues of integrity, transparency and social justice.

Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said the vice-president interacted with a group of Harvard Business School students who visited him at the Presidential Villa.

Numbering about a dozen, some of the students are Nigerians.

The students, who are currently on an African excursion, asked questions about leadership, faith, spirituality, government policies in education, health, economy, and national image, among others.

“Just looking at these values, there is a great deal of unanimity about what is the right thing to do.

“The question is whether or not you will do those things, or whether you are motivated enough to do them, or whether you are compelled to do them.

“Spirituality helps in that sense to help you to decide what to do and what not to do; especially where institutions are not strong enough to restrain people from behaving in a particular way or not,” he said.

Osinbajo said that the virtues of integrity, transparency and social justice were also exhorted in the different faiths and religions in the country.

According to him, spirituality connotes values.
