- A documentary photographer attached to the office of the vice president on Thursday, January 28, shared private images of her boss
- Tolani Alli, a respected visual storyteller, shared the photos as she celebrated her first year anniversary working with the vice president
- The photos revolve around the vice president's private moments which he spends reading and studying
Tolani Alli, the personal photographer to Professor Yemi Osinbajo has shared never-before-seen images of the vice president's study sessions.
Osinbajo, a pastor and academic is a renowned professor of law and former Attorney-General of Lagos state.
Alli, a former personal photographer to former Oyo state governor, Late Senator Abiola Ajimobi, released photographs that show the vice president is an avid reader.
The photos were shared by Alli to celebrate one first year anniversary working with the vice president as his special assistant on visual documentation.
“After almost a year and a half of documenting Professor Osinbajo, perhaps the most reinforcing lesson that I have been able to pick out is the one of building strong, healthy habits that help to guide your life.
“Initially, it wasn’t too surprising because, after all, he is an academic, but seeing how consistent he is with it — especially during this pandemic — provoked some thoughts.
“It would be an unusual day if I didn’t walk in on him in intensive study. If his example is anything to learn from, it is that successful people have a plethora of great habits that they submit to daily, regardless of inane distractions or actual genuine excuses.
“These are habits that they have built over time, through great pains, disinterest, and as an incredible show of delayed gratification.
“Beyond all the glitz and the glamour that we see, there are hours of rote, boring but consistent hours of work behind the scenes. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but by daily consistent brick-laying and applying yourself, your results are not that far off the horizon. KEEP PUSHING!”
Legit.ng had earlier reported on how Alli dismissed the claims of a woman who called out her boss on social media.

Quoting the tweet and responding to the allegation, Alli shared photos of the vice president at the time the incident occurred, adding that her boss was inside his office.
