Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, has stated that “the country is blessed with great talents and Nigerians are among some of the most creative and smartest persons around the world.’’
He said this while receiving Africa’s first pilot to fly solo around the world, Capt. Lola Odujinrin who paid a courtesy visit to the Presidential Villa. Odujinrin flew to 25 countries and made 35 stops in 9 months, making him the first African to attain the feat.
According to Prof. Osinbajo, “your story is really fascinating and I am extremely proud of what you have done and more that you are a Nigerian and I am very sure that just as we took over the entertainment industry, we will certainly break new grounds.
‘This is the sort of things that people should hear especially young people. It is really inspiring and younger people must begin to learn from your experience and story, and am glad that you achieved this feat.
“Also, the team is entirely Nigerian and that by itself is certainly a good thing and I am sure this portends even greater things for us in the future,’’ he submitted.
Prof. Osinbajo said that he looked forward to supporting the pilot’s humanitarian project, which he advised to begin on an expandable note.
