…. Says Nigeria in Safe Hands for Sustainable Development
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, has congratulated the new President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his successful inauguration as the nation’s helmsman.
The Governor in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media , Yinka Oyebode, also congratulated all Nigerians on the successful completion of the process of transition of power from one administration to another, adding that the seamless transition is an attestation to the growth of democratic culture in the country.
Oyebanji hailed Nigerians for keeping faith with the All Progressives Congress (APC) by electing its flag bearer, President Tinubu at the February 25 presidential poll and accepting his manifesto of Renewed Hope as an instrument of taking Nigeria to the harbour of prosperity and fulfillment.
The Ekiti Governor said with President Tinubu in the driving seat, Nigeria is in safe hands for sustainable development, economic revival, sustenance of infrastructure renewal, reduction of poverty, wealth and job creation and fulfillment of electoral promises made in the lead-up to the presidential poll.
Attesting to the new President’s competence to make a difference in running a government that will live up to expectations, Oyebanji described President Tinubu as an administrator that has the wealth of experience to turn the fortunes of Nigeria around positively within his tenure of office.
The Governor noted that it was remarkable for Nigeria to have carried out seven consecutive and successful transition since return to democracy in 1999 expressing confidence that the country’s democracy has grown in leaps and bounds and has come to stay.
He described the Renewed Hope agenda of President Tinubu as a blueprint carefully packaged to provide panacea to all challenges confronting the polity across the various sectors.
The Governor also congratulated the immediate past President Muhammadu Buhari on the successful completion of his two terms of four years each and for superintending over a successful general election which has just birthed an equally successful transfer of power.
While noting that though expectations are very high as the new administration settles down to the serious business of governance, Oyebanji urged Nigerians to be patient with the new President and his team as they implement their agenda to take Nigeria to a higher pedestal of development.
“I urge Nigerians irrespective of their political, ethnic and religious affiliations to pray for the success of President Tinubu and support him to realize his dream of a prosperous Nigeria that will fully realize its potentials.
“The elections have come and gone, President Tinubu is now the father of the nation; he is not a President of his political party or a section of the country but the President of the whole entity called Nigeria.
“President Tinubu has demonstrated competence as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria during which he was Chairman of Senate Committee on Banking and Currency and during his stellar two-term tenure as the Governor of Lagos State which has remained a reference point in governance in Nigeria.
“The government and people of Ekiti State wish our new President a very successful tenure of office and we are assuring him of our readiness to partner with him to ensure a greater, stronger, more united and prosperous Nigeria.” The Governor said.
