Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has said that no country in the world can succeed without going through some pain.

Osinbajo also said that the Muhammadu Buhari administration is working to solve the problems plaguing the country.

The Vice President made the comments on Thursday, December 22, during a visit to the Mpape artisans’ village in Abuja FCT, yesterday.

“For instance, look at what is happening in the Niger Delta; that is where we get most of the money. But when the boys in the Niger Delta decided to start blowing up pipelines, production dropped from the 2 million barrels per day that we used to do, to 1 million per day and we lost 60 per cent of what we used to earn from oil. That is partly responsible for the problem that you see today," he said.

“Now, there are many people with jobs because we are beginning to produce rice, mill it locally and distribute. In the meantime it will be expensive and when it is expensive, there will be suffering but that is the only way we are going to stop importing rice.

“There is no country that can make progress without some pain. If you don’t fight corruption, the money we are trying to get, some persons will pocket it and that is all and there won’t be anything," he added.
