Tinubu pledges to fulfill ‘renewed hope’ campaign promises

Nigeria’s incoming President, Bola Tinubu has renewed his commitment to fulfill his campaign promises barely some hours to his inauguration as the new leader of the most populous black nation on earth.

Speaking at a dinner hosted by the presidential transition committee (PTC) at the Aso Rock Villa on Sunday night, Mr. Tinubu emphasized the importance of combating corruption and poverty, among other concerns facing the country.

The former governor of Lagos stressed that he will not hesitate to seek advice from outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari on how to manage the country where and how necessary.

“We must fight corruption, poverty, inconsistencies in policies and many other problems confronting us, but don’t pity me, I asked for the job,” he said.

“I campaigned for it, no excuses, I will live up to the bill to deliver. I promise you.

“Resilience, determination, courage, love in diversity, though our tongues and tribes differ. By tomorrow afternoon, my predecessor is heading to Daura, on the border with Niger, but I have told him not to worry, he will still get a knock on his door.

“No matter how short a man is, he will see the sky. I will still be able to find him when I need his help.

Here is a country that has stumbled a number of times, but has never faltered. We can be squeaky like an old mama’s car, but we will never break apart. We are just a unique country.”

While reacting, the outgoing President, Muhammadu Buhari said he looks forward to handing over power and returning to Daura, Katsina State.

“I congratulate fellow Nigerians who have realised that their power, their votes count,” he said.

“I am looking forward to tomorrow, flying to my base and going back to my cows and sheep, which are much easier to control than fellow Nigerians.”

Highlight of the event was the unveiling of the book entitled “Renewed hope, Greater together,” by Aisha Buhari, wife of the president; Kashim Shettima, vice-president-elect; and Remi Tinubu, incoming first lady.
