Osinbajo speaking at the presentation and the inauguration of HIYA Nigeria at the Nigeria Television Authority, NTA headquarters in Abuja on Thursday said: ‘…whether here or in the diaspora, some of the smartest people in the world are Nigerians. But our greatest assets are our young people; bright, creative and irrepressible. In technology, music and entertainment, we have proved that we are the future.’ He further said that it is far from it to think that the leadership of the country, especially the political leadership have all the responsibility, saying that each and every one of us has the responsibility.
‘I think we are on the right path, and today when you listen to what we have heard already and listen to the plans that many here have for the future – a group of people, the NTA, the NOA, and the private organisation, Zeitgeist Aesthetics LTD/GTE that put this together, they decided it was worth talking about. Patriotism, civic and national values are worth talking about. It shows you that our country is one where there is so much hope, energy and creativity and every one of us is waiting for it to come together. It is a duty that we all have. Sometimes we think that the leadership of the country, especially the political leadership have all the responsibility, far from it. Each and every one of us has the responsibility. he said.
