Federal government seeks private sector partnership for peace and security

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has called on the private sector to work with the government at all levels to establish peace and security, justice and participatory democracy in Nigeria and in the African continent.

The Vice President who made call in Abuja at the launch of the Global Commission Report on Governance, Security and Development, stated that social injustice was mostly responsible for the many conflicts in Africa and around the world.

According to the vice president, setting things right cannot be left to the government alone, especially as injustice in Nigeria has often led to insecurity and instability in other countries.

He added that for the government to be responsive and responsible, all segments of the population must continue to play its role in global peace and security, starting with the sub-region.

While identifying Africa as one of the continents at the centre of series of vices and conflicts, resulting from crises of global governance, Osinbajo emphasized that Nigeria needed to play a pivotal role in the reforms of global governance institutions in Africa.
