Osinbajo listed some of the government policies to include the N-Power programme, the TraderMoni and cash transfers to vulnerable Nigerians among others.
He said: “The petty trader who was able to expand her business because of TraderMoni; the unemployed graduate who benefitting from the N-Power programme discovers a new and profitable path in addition, the passengers who could not hide their excitement at the seamless operation of the modern railway system or the state-of-the-art airport terminals are testimonies from Nigerians.

“These are real people provided with a springboard to do more for themselves and for their communities; real people inspired to hope and believe that Nigeria can be positively transformed in our lifetime.
“I believe I speak the mind of the president when I say that our administration considers it a privilege and an honour to serve the people of our great nation as we have done in the last eight years.
“These accomplishments are the hard-won dividends of the social contract we entered into with the Nigerian people when we came into office in 2015.”
