Former military President in Nigeria, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd) has described the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President-elect, as a step in the right direction.
General Babangida, in a statement issued recently by his media officer, said Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the right man for job.
He commended the National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting a free, fair and credible election that produced Tinubu as next President of this country.
“it’s a thing of joy that this is happening in my lifetime. I can confidently say that Tinubu is a good man for the job.
“I have no doubt that Tinubu would perform as the President of Nigeria. For some of us, who have been there before, I know that there is still more work to be done, and I believe that Tinubu has what it takes to take Nigeria to the next level.
“We have much potential as a nation, what we need is a good direction so that we can continue to be seen as the giant of Africa. Indeed our best is yet to come, but we can get to where we ought to be with determination and commitment.”
“Tinubu is coming from the background of a performer, who loves his people with all his hearts and who knows how to put a round peg in a round hole”.
“This is a bright moment for Nigeria, we have to take our destiny in our hands and make things work for us as a nation. We cannot continue to do things the same way, and I believe that God will make things work for this country again,”
The country ex- President commended Nigerians for trooping out enmass to vote for the Presidential Candidate of their choice and wished the President-elect the wherewithal to take Nigeria to an enviable standard.
