Tinubu sends message to Obedience, others who didn’t vote for him


Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu, has sent a message to people who didn’t vote for him during the February 25 general election.


Tinubu, in a statement on Thursday, told them to believe in the country.


According to the ex-Lagos state Governor, he is seeking a better Nigeria for all citizens irrespective of their political affiliations.


“I ask that we work together as Nigerians for Nigeria. Those who voted for me, I ask that you continue to believe in our policies and plans for the country.


“I also ask that you reach out to your brothers and sisters who did not vote as you did. Extend to them the hand of friendship, reconciliation, and togetherness,” Tinubu said.

“To those of you who did not vote for me, I ask you to believe in Nigeria and in the capacity of your fellow citizens, even those who voted differently than you. The better Nigeria I seek is not just for me and my supporters. It is equally yours.”


Tinubu said he hopes to form a government of unity and competence.

“There has been talk of a government of national unity. My aim is higher than that. I seek a government of national competence,” he said.


“In selecting my government, I shall not be weighed down by considerations extraneous to ability and performance. The day for political gamesmanship is long gone. I shall assemble competent men and women and young people from across Nigeria to build a safer, more prosperous, and just Nigeria.


“There shall be young people. Women shall be prominent. Whether your faith leads you to pray in a church or mosque will not determine your place in government. Character and competence will.”


The president-elect said the country would be great if all citizens support him in his bid to make the country better.
