Nigerians commend Osinbajo for short vacation, leadership

Many have also commended him for taking a short family vacation to Dubai, United Arab Emirates after a busy year in service to the country.

On different social medial platforms and online blogs, some expressed gratitude to Prof. Osinbajo for his exemplary leadership and need to take a break during this period. Some noted that the VP needed to 'recharge his batteries' after a busy 2017.

"The man has tried, let him rest a little,"  one commenter mentioned on a popular blog. Another said, "He needs it abeg. He should take more sef," one Frances.

On another online news website, a Nigerian who described himself as patriot1 commented on the VP's short vacation: "That's very timely VP, you have earned it by all means. Go. Recharge yourself because you have been very active since the inception of this government."

Indeed, it had been a very busy period for Prof. Osinbajo. When President Buhari was on medical vacation, the VP held held forte at the helm as Acting President. An online medium rightly noted that, "It is a common joke at the Presidential Villa whenever the vice president was chairing any meeting, especially, the Federal Executive Council, FEC, that "people will be here all day."

Since the inception of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in May 2015, Osinbajo has shown exemplary leadership qualities several times

The vice president's leadership mettle was in full display during the Christmas period when, instead of going on a well-deserved break for the Yuletide, Prof. Osinbajo was still busy working tirelessly. During Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, the VP shunned the usual merry and relaxation with family and friends as he went round fuel stations and depots in Lagos State to find a way to ease the hardship caused by the fuel scarcity on Nigerians.

During this period, Prof Osinbajo also held different meetings with major oil marketers to resolve the fuel crisis. "Within the next few days, we expect the fuel queues to be eliminated. We will continue to engage the marketers so this sad episode is not repeated," he said.

Soon after he waded into the crisis in the oil sector, a chain of events followed as the NNPC, Minister of Petroleum and the Federal Government made concerted efforts to end the fuel shortage nationwide. Finally, Nigerians were able to heave sighs of relief as the queues at filling stations gradually abated.

Osinbajo's model leadership – meeting and mingling with the citizenry at the point of their needs - was not lost on many Nigerians, who praised him for showing empathy with the people as pictures and footages of the vice president at fuel depots and station

One commentator on Twitter described it as "in-touch leadership, because symbolism matters." Also, on Facebook and other social media platforms, the Vice president was also commended by many Nigerians.

"His Excellency, your passion in trying to get things work in Nigeria is so evident," Donalds Ngige wrote on Facebook. Meka James Ajanusi described the VP's "willingness to reach out to Nigerians as "just awesome."

Similarly, Ibe Ogbonnaya wrote on Facebook: "Your Excellency, you do a lot of damage control in this country, you reached out to the masses and that's why you're super awesome."

While Olaseeni Aina tagged Osinbajo as "a man of the people." "Well done my amiable VP, for you to come out and monitor what's going on around, kudos to u sir, God will help you," he wrote.

The vice president is expected to return to the country this weekend. He dives to work immediately to be part of the Interdenominational service for 2018 Armed Forces Remembrance Day.
