The acting President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has gained some good popularity among the Nigerian people as many feel that even with the state of the nation being so bad at the moment, his little efforts are doing well to improve the situation.

Osinbajo became acting president after President Muhammadu Buhari proceeded on annual vacation/medical check up in the UK on Thursday, January 19, 2017.

Buhari sent a letter to the National Assembly informing it of his intention and transferred power to Osinbajo pending his return.

Buhari has also been hailed for transferring power to Osinbajo while he’s away and also for picking a Vice President who can handle the affairs of the nation smoothly and progressively if he’s not available.

Here are some things the Acting President has done that have left Nigerians happy:

1. Food Programme
On Friday, January 24, he promised that the Federal Government was planning urgent relief to poultry farmers in the country to save the industry from collapse. He also presided over the Federal Executive Council(FEC) meeting on February 1, during which the Presidential Task Force on food security was mandated to reduce prices of food items in the country.

2. Road Contracts
On February 8, he chaired the FEC and approved the N21 billion bill for the construction of the Ilorin-Omu Aran-Kabba Road, Section I.

February 15, he approved the award of N126 billion road projects spread across Kano, Bauchi, Adamawa, Kwara, Gombe, Enugu and Kaduna states.

3. Visiting The Niger Delta
Between February 10 and 13, Osinbajo visited Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital in continuation of his interactive engagements with oil-producing communities in the Niger Delta region.

He proceeded to Port Harcourt, Rivers state, to meet stakeholders of the oil producing communities there. During the meeting, he rolled out the framework for the clean-up exercise of the Ogoni land.

4. CBN and the Foreign Exchange Policies

February 16, he presided over the first National Economic Council meeting of the year and directed the CBN to review the foreign exchange policy. In the meeting, it was resolved that fresh $250 million be injected into the Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF). The CBN subsequently released about $500 million through the interbank market, where 23 banks bought $371m.

5. Signed 7 Bills Into Law
February 17, Professor Osinbajo signed seven bills into law. These bills included the Oaths (Amendment) Act 2017; Defence Space Administration Act 2017; Veterinary Surgeons (Amendment) Act 2017; and others.

      Buhari should resign and focus on his health. Nigeria must change, it has to change there’s no way around it. President osinbajo will lead Nigeria in the change we’ve all been waiting for. Enough is enough. It’s time for that country to be the best it can be.

      Educated leaders have ruled Nigeria. Majority of the citizens are also educated and look at how Nigeria remains backward. This is what happens when you simply allow a man with vision, conscience and great character rule.
      Nigerians, education is not the problem it’s also the application of it. And character.

      Growing old is a privilege that not everybody will have. For your hatred to descend to that post, your chances of having the privilege of growing old is quite minimal. This also applies to other people displaying the mental state that your name shows who will end up loving your insane post.

      Lastly, If you think these programs and policies have not been in the works before the president’s absence, then keep basking in your self warming hypocrisy. Properly planned policies don’t happen within 2 to 3 weeks.

      Forget story..absolutely nothing will happen to anyone who wishes that evil man dead. When his fanatical Northern supporters killed over 800 people amidst his 2011 loss nko, many of whom were youth corpers. His incendiary comments after his loss pushed his supporters to the edge and they went on a killing spree of inmocent southerners in the North. When he intentionally backdated a law and killed two drug offenders while he was Head of State in 1984 nko? Buhari is an EXTREMELY EVIL man and that is the BARE TRUTH. Forget packaging and lies..And he is also EXTREMELY DULL AND INEPT. In 1984, Idoagbon gave his government the little goodwill it had. As PTF Chairman, he totally left his duties for a consultancy firm owned by his Nephew-the late Ahmed Salidjo of defunct Afri-Projects Consortium.and that man made his billions in his 30’s. And stupid people will tell you Buhari is not corrupt. I just laugh..Awon ode…You can only fool younger people who are too lazy to do simple research and too timid to stand out of a crowd..Now the man’s EXTREME DULLNESS is coming to light and you are still trying to find an excuse that policies take time to manifest…lol…Una no dey tire? Just give up already, even deep down..you know that Buhari is and will always be a disaster.

      @ Mark. The same old fables which has remained largely unproven that you keep spouting around. You forgot to add that he is the sponsor of Boko Haram, the missing $2.8 billion dollars and allegations of being the sponsor of the Fulani herdsmen which normally goes to the repertoire. Perhaps, if the back dated law to kill all drug dealers remained successful for a long period of time, may be the country would have avoided the disdain attached to her name as a result of our citizens drug trafficking across the world.

      I have never seen a president that is strong in every aspect of managing a country. To complement their weakness, they take on a vice and a team that can take the lead in the area where they have little or no skill. Therefore, it is commendable that the president realizes the need for personnel like Idiagbon and Osinbajo. Being the global president of Shell does not make you experienced in exploration, marketing, supply chain and other aspects of managing the company. It is funny that the same Osinbajo which was continuously labelled as Tinubu’s stooge and fake pastor is now the slagging bait for the president.

      Lastly, not accepting wishing another man dead irrespective of your perception does not translate into automatic support for him. If you learn to leave the path of complete hate, you will learn to analyze all issues rationally. I have said countless times on this blog that, Buhari is an employee of the Nigerians that voted him in, so he needs to inform us promptly on the state of his health, because an employer does not continuously wait on the employee if circumstance beyond control such as health issues hinders the ability to perform. If the president is bed ridden or won’t reach full recovery in a short period, he should resign and allow the country to move ahead.

      @Marks….You have posted the same old fables which remains largely unproven. Please add the following allegations; that the president is the sponsor of Boko haram, stole $2.8 billion dollars and he is responsible for the Fulani herdsmen menance, so that the usual repertoire will be complete. Maybe if the law on killing drug traffickers was sustained for a long period, the Nigerian name will not be attached to global disdain as a result of heavy global drug trafficking by the citizens of the country.

      I have never seen a president that is competent in all aspects of running a country . Wisdom dictates that you run with a vice and build a team that complements your weakness. Hence, it is commendable that the president realized his weakness and brought in the right personnel like Idiagbon and Osinbajo to aid effective running of the country. Being the global president of Shell does not make you competent in engineering, supply chain, marketing and other branches of the organization. Competency is built by pulling a network of sound people together. It is hypocritical that the same Osibanjo that was termed as Tinubu’s stooge and fake pastor is now the slagging bait for the president.

      Not supporting your hateful wish of death to the president does not translate into automatic support for him. Perhaps, leaving the path of hate will allow you to discern that wishing someone death is evil and not Christ like despite your posture of being the sinless lamb.

      I have said repeatedly that the president is an employee of Nigerians, hence, he must inform the employer (Nigerians) his health status immediately so that we can decide if he can continue the job. If the president is bed ridden or possibility of achieving full recovery is distant, he should resign. Thankfully, he once said he needs a vice that can hold the country together if he dies. The country shall move on irrespective of what happens to him but wishing death on a person is evil. I will rather have a 100 evil Buhari against his last predecessor.

      He doesnt have to die.. He just needs to keep resting in London. You know, take his time…no need to rush back to work. Nigeria will do just fine.

    Prof has shown more sincerity of purpose and sense of responsibility. This is essentially, what a Leader should have and it does not necessarily come from education. Most of our past/current Governors and Senators/House of Reps have very sound education but are legendary under-performers.

    @Ade God bless you once again. You see why I don’t mince words when I attack these hypocrites. It’s sad that 77 people liked his comment, the very reason why i generalise while responding to their hate for Buhari. I remember when they were chorusing that he is the sponsor of boko haram and praising Fayose and FFK, their hatred, hypocrisy and prejudice is alarming. Anyway, did anyone see their new attire and flag at the court for Kanu Biafraud. Confused people, kai God give us brain He too go fit test sometime, I wonder what some people do with theirs. @ Mark & madman una try o for speaking your mind while the 77 remain a coward

    I pray God leads Osinbajo. Any enemy of progress of Naija, evil hearts and mind they will die one by one.
    True leaders will finally rise up and lead the country the right way
