Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, on Wednesday, identified that the Presidency of President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu and vice president-elect Kashim Shettima will deliver the dreams of Nigeria’s founding fathers. The First Lady stated this in a congratulatory message she personally signed in Abuja.
Recall that Tinubu garnered 8,805,420 votes to defeat his closest contenders, PDP’s Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party’s Peter Obi. It is my conviction that the Tinubu/Shettima Presidency will lead this country into the future that our founding fathers envisioned,” Mrs Buhari said.
Aisha, however, said the success recorded in last Saturday’s election was a result of dexterity, foresight and good intentions of Tinubu to carry all Nigerians along, irrespective of their ethnic and religious background.
She thanked all Nigerians, particularly women, for their efforts towards the success of the APC at the elections. Mrs. Buhari also congratulated her successor, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, expressing her belief that Nigerian women will receive a good deal during her tenure.
