Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has congratulated President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his inauguration as the 16th President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
Gbajabiamila hailed Tinubu for his sagacity, resilience, determination, and commitment to Nigeria’s democracy for over three decades crowned by his election on February 25, 2023.
In a statement he personally signed Monday, Gbajabiamila noted with delight how Tinubu has resolved to unite Nigeria, coming out of a highly contested election, where he emerged victorious, noting that with Tinubu’s inauguration, Nigeria has taken off on a good footing after the administration of outgoing president, Muhammadu Buhari.
He said the country would truly witness renewed hope as captured in the president’s campaign slogan and his inaugural speech where he promised Nigerians that he would govern and not rule them.
The speaker said President Tinubu and vice president Kashim Shettima are well prepared for the task ahead, hence, he expressed confidence that the president would not disappoint Nigeria and Nigerians.
He said: “It gives me great pleasure to join millions of Nigerians at home and the world over on this great day where a great Nigerian, a dogged fighter, a democrat, a unifier and a nationalist, Asiwaju Tinubu, is inaugurated as the 16th President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“It has been a long walk. But with determination, resilience, tenacity, and doggedness, the Almighty God has made it possible. Nigerians have spoken on February 25, and today, we are witnessing the inauguration of one of our finest and most strategic politicians in history as Nigeria’s president.”
