The book reviews the administration’s achievements during the last two years, Premium Times reports.
Here are some of words spoken by the VP.

1. Buhari’s frugality
The vice president lauded President Buhari over his habit of avoiding unnecessary expenditure.
He said the president decided to take only half of his salary since the government provides accommodation, food and transportation for the President and the vice president.
“He said he would take only half of his salary and so I had no choice but also to (offer) to take half of my own salary. Unfortunately, Mr. President turned down my request. He didn’t consider me a more worthy cause to give half of his salary (laughter)!”

2. Buhari’s honesty
Osinbajo also praised President Buhari for his honesty.
He said: “In a country where politicians sometimes want to be as wealthy as Dangote (Africa’s richest man), it is refreshing to have a President who most people won’t even dare to discuss any private benefit on a project let alone a bribe or a kick-back”, he said.

3. Buhari’s humility
He also praised the president for his humility. He said Buhari has an unassuming personality.
“I remember when he was on medical vacation, and I was speaking to him on the phone fairly regularly and giving him a rundown of what was going on, especially when he was on the first medical vacation. He said to me, “don’t worry about telling me all that is happening, I rely on your judgment, keep doing your best, what if I drop dead? You would have to run it anyway.” I had to say to him, that his dropping dead was not part of the plan,” he said.
4. Buhari’s sense of humour
Osinbajo also praised President over his sense of humour. He said the president understands that leadership, is not about self-adulation and self-aggrandisement.
5. Buhari‘s greatest challenge
Speaking on the president’s greatest challenge.
He said: “The reality of honest and serious minded nation building is that in the short run, tough and unpopular decisions have to be made. I suppose you cannot be a Buhari and shy away from tough decisions, and the President has not been afraid to take the bold decisions even when they are criticised.”
