"But, I understand clearly that it is the leadership that must set the example and we are prepared to do that and we will do that."

Osinbajo, who stated the nation needed straightforward leaders like President Muhammadu Buhari, expressed the readiness of the government to fulfill its campaign promises to Nigerians.
