The Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams, has stated that the All Progressives Party (APC) flagbearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was elected president-elect due to his ‘doggedness and continuity in Nigerian politics.’
The announcement was made in a congratulatory message to Tinubu on Wednesday, written by Adam’s special assistant on media, Kehinde Aderemi.
Tinubu’s emergence, he believes, was well-deserved because he has been a constant frontline politician who has worked diligently for the enthronement of Nigeria’s democracy.
He admonished Tinubu to remain faithful to the ideals of democracy by fulfilling his vow to be the ‘servant of the people’.
“I congratulate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory,” he said. His triumph was hardly surprising. He deserves it since he
has been consistent as a frontline politician that had fought tirelessly for the enthronement of this democracy.
“He had also fought a long battle ahead of this victory. While wishing him all the best in his new political adventure, it is my view also that Asiwaju should remember that it is his duty as the next President of Nigeria to fulfill the democratic vision of this country; the vision that is based on peace, unity, justice, and tolerance among others.”
