Tinubu is happy with Nigerians.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has praised Nigerians on the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that it has stabilised the country’s democracy and a fresh impetus on the fight against corruption.
According to a statement on Vanguard, the former Lagos state governor said, “In re-electing President Buhari, you have shown that you believe Nigeria should move forward to its better future instead of returning to the mistaken ways of our past. You have chosen victory over defeat, hope over despair, prosperity over poverty. You have elected the path toward a greater Nigerian instead of that toward our lesser selves.
With this election, Nigeria signals to the world our unalloyed embrace of democracy and our unflinching determination to perfect this democracy. While this election was free and fair, we also must acknowledge the isolated incidents of violence. Nigerians were killed and injured during what otherwise was an exemplary democratic procession. Such things should never happen and do us no good.
We must dedicate ourselves to the principle that elections are meant to better all of our lives and thus there is no reason why elections should result in the impairment of even a single life. Let us work even harder to ensure that the March governorship and state assembly elections be devoid of such unfortunate incidents.
President Buhari has marked progress against the terror of Boko Haram. In his second term, he will continue to install peace where there is unrest and violence and he will not cease in this task until Boko Haram and its evil brethren are no more. He will continue to battle corruption head-on. Given the president’s fortitude and
determination, I know corruption will lose this battle and receded from being a major factor in our public arena.
This current leadership owes our youth and all Nigerians to build a political culture of civility, tolerance and equality. The tasks before us are hard. We dare not underestimate the challenges that await, but the rewards that beckon are profound. The people of Nigeria are industrious and brave. The ground beneath us is fecund and it is ours. Our plans are visionary and bold. Our goals are just. And the president you have re-elected is honest and true.”
