VP Osinbajo Calls For End To Federal Character In Govt Appointments

Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo says federal character shouldn't be used as a criteria in doling out government appointments.

 According to THIS DAY, Osinbajo made the call last Thursday when he delivered a keynote address at the 10th memorial anniversary lecture organised by the Justice P.O.E Bassey Foundation held at the International Conference Centre of the University of Calabar, Cross River State.

The VP said, ''At that instance, nobody considers where a player or players come from. All they expect of the coach are players who merit places in the team and can get results. I don’t take my health for granted. So when going for a medical doctor, I go for the best not considering which part of the country the doctor comes from.

''If we take government seriously, we must as Nigerians look for merit before federal character. Righteousness exalts a nation''.

''No society has developed that has not kept to some form of core values. Governance has to be based on principles and ideals. One of such principles is hard work. It is also critical that the work be positively directed and productive in the end''.
