The current 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 been so bad at the moment, his little efforts are doing well to suit Nigerians.

Others even went on to say that they prefer him as president, unlike President Buhari who has been away since Thursday, January 19, 2017.
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.
