Osinbajo while speaking with state house correspondents on Monday after a meeting with Buhari stated that it was team work coordinated by Buhari, who was in London.
Buhari recently returned from his treatment in london where he had spent about 50 days on a medical vacation.
While he was away analysts say the nation made some level of progress under Osinbajo, as opposed to when Buhari was in charge of affairs.
However, Osinbajo stated, I think one thing that we must recognize is the way this administration works, it has always been that of team work.
There is very little that is done without the President's clearance and endorsement, so generally speaking, even with some responsibilities that are mine constitutionally, we always have full discussions and agreements on them, and in some cases there is delegation. But by and large, I practically discussed practically everything fully with him while he was away and I had his endorsements before we were able to go on and do what we did, the Vice President stated.
He also said that President Buhari is doing very well, he is in his office and we just had a meeting, a very long meeting.
We are basically trying to bring the President to speed on some of what has been done while he was away and he has given a few directives on what we should be doing in so many different areas; the Northeast, the budget, the economy, quite a range of issues. We just had a meeting for over an hour and his readiness for work isn't in doubt at all, he said.
On the president's view of his performance, Osinbajo said, I think the President was reasonably satisfied with the way I acted.
