Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President, has emphasized that elected officials should strive to connect with the voters on a frequent basis. He said this yesterday in Abuja when welcoming the outgoing UN Resident Coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, according to his spokesman, Laolu Akande. As crucial problems, Osinbajo stressed that constant interaction with the public on justice, peace, security, and the social compact could not be allowed to slip through the cracks. "You can't avoid interacting with people; you have to do so in a way that you can be trusted." People should be able to see that you care about their worries. “You cannot avoid engaging with the people; there’s need to engage in a way that you’re trusted. People should see that you’re committed enough about their concerns. “People must feel that government is committed to their welfare, security and especially on issues of healthcare and education of their children. So, a social compact is crucial. “As a matter of fact, it is both a current concern and aspiration for those of us who have been fortunate to be elected into positions in government and in the politics of our country,’’ he said.
