Vice President-elect Oluyemi Osinbajo has said the new Buhari-led administration also aims to bridge the gap over growing tensions between Christians and Muslims, following the ongoing spate of attacks on believers by Islamist terror group Boko Haram.
Boko Haram have kidnapped more than 2,000 Christians and Muslims during its sustained reign of terror in north-eastern Nigeria in 2014, including more than 200 school girls sparking worldwide condemnation, and becoming a key election issue.
Muhammadu Buhari, 72, takes office on 29th May 2015, marking the first time in Nigeria's history that an incumbent elected President will peacefully transfer power to an elected leader of the opposition.
"It is the kind of commitment that we just have to deal with on a day to day basis.
"We have to ensure that this is priority for us.
"There is no question at all that this is something that has been heavy on the hearts of most Nigerians, said Vice President-elect Oluyemi Osinbajo speaking to Premier's Muyiwa Olarewaju.
"It's the sort of thing you would have to deal with on a day to day; you'd have to get a briefing on it every single day. 'Where's the progress on this? What is happening with this? How far are we going? Who are we co-operating with? Have we found anything?"
"We simply have to raise the value of the Nigerian life.
"That's one of the problems that we've had.
"You hear that people died, they are not mentioned by name; nobody sees a picture of them, nobody knows who they are.
"That's one of the things that we are set to change. You cannot have a situation where the value of life is any less that it ought to be," added Vice President Osinbajo.
