Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the next president of Nigeria, stated in a press release on Thursday that he is committed to developing the country’s economy.
He claims that his government will be devoted to “an economy of double-digit GDP growth, increased food security, and one with a strengthened manufacturing base as well as an active digital economy where young people will have adequate space to fulfill their ambitions and aspirations”.
By choosing people with integrity and competence for his government, Tinubu believes that the economy of the country would expand significantly and that the country will become more competent. As your new president, I accept the responsibility entrusted to me, he remarked. The idea of a government of national unity has been floated. My goals are greater than that. I want a national competent government.
Newly Elect President Bola Ahmed Tinubu said “I won’t let factors unrelated to competence and aptitude weigh down my decision while choosing my government. Political game-playing is no longer acceptable. To create a country that is safer, more wealthy, and just, I will unite capable men, women, and young people from all over Nigeria. Youths will be present. Women must take center stage. It will not affect your position in government if you choose to pray at a church or mosque. Competence and character will.”
He said that he and his team have been working on ideas and policy solutions in daily meetings and conversations so that they can start actively advancing the common good the moment they take office.
He advised Nigerians to ignore critics who claim that the All Progressives Congress, APC “is fragmented due to the impressive showing of new parties and their candidates,” claiming that these critics are mistaken and that the “emergence of the new parties and their candidates underscores the dynamic strength of” Nigeria’s democracy.
The newly elected president Tinubu then urged Nigerians to join him in creating the country with unity and dedication, regardless of how they felt about the election results. I beg that we all work together for Nigeria, he remarked. I kindly ask everyone who supported me to continue to support our national programs and plans. Please reach out to your sisters and brothers who did not vote the same way you did. Offer them your hand in kindness, reconciliation, and unity. I implore those of you who abstained from voting for me to have faith in Nigeria and in the ability of your fellow citizens, including those who cast votes in opposition to your own.
I don’t just want a better Nigeria for myself and my followers. Equally yours is it. I’m not asking you to change your political views. Undemocratic would be the result. I implore you to respond to the patriotic responsibility as the steadfast opposition. (Tinubu)
