Vice President Osinbajo, in a statement by his media aide, Laolu Akande, stated this yesterday  while delivering the keynote address at the 111th Founders’ Day Lecture of King’s College, Lagos.  According to Prof. Osinbajo “when people are nurtured in the notion that rent-seeking or the prebendal capture of wealth or benefit by access to power is the path to success, then the society will not prosper. A few will capture all the resources, everyone else will be poor or on their way there.”  He stated that Nigerians are gifted with attributes of confidence, resilience and mental acuity that is by any standard, exceptional, adding that this is best demonstrated in how “we excel even in other countries in sciences, medicine and even politics.
