President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has revealed that his victory at the February 25th presidential elections is the greatest gift to celebrate his 71st birthday.
“With such a privilege already granted to me, I will not go so far as to suggest I am due any birthday presents this year,” Tinubu said in a personal message to Nigerians on Wednesday.
“I have already been given the greatest gift. A chance to lead and fulfil destiny. An opportunity to champion your aspirations and to bring about the Nigeria of your dreams.”
The President-elect stated that he would, instead, use the day as an opportunity to reiterate his commitment to the great and important task of rebuilding the nation and renewing the hope of the Nigerian people.
“I campaigned hard and made important promises. Those promises were not mere words; professed glibly or cynically to win support,” he noted.
“They represent a bond that binds me to the task of creating a better Nigeria for the benefit of every Nigerian, whether you voted for me or not. I have prepared for this moment all my life, I will not fail.”
Recall that Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was declared the winner of the election on the 1st of March, after defeating Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
