I won?t disappoint you - Bola Tinubu assures Nigerians

Assuring the President and Nigerians that he would not let them down, Tinubu said he understood the significance of the honour and the mission at hand.

“I am a simple man who is the beneficiary of the support and goodwill of the people of Nigeria. The people have put their trust in us. You have done your part, Mr. President. Now, that great duty descends on me. I understand the meaning of the honour given to me today and of the task that awaits.

I must run this race and must do it well. On security, the economy, agriculture, jobs, education, health and power and in all other sectors we must make headway. The people deserve no less. In this, I shall disappoint neither them nor you, Mr President.”he said

Tinubu also hailed President Buhari for honouring the late MKO Abiola, winner of the annulled June 12, 1993, presidential election.

“One such decision was to recognise the injustice of the annulment of the 1993 election, to designate June as Democracy Day, and to bestow the nation’s highest honour on the late MKO Abiola. As much as anyone could, you reached back into history to set the record straight and heal a festering wound.” he said
