The president-elect, Senator Bola Tinubu has thanked all those who sent him congratulatory messages across Nigeria and abroad.

He appreciated his well wishers in a statement he released through his social media platforms on Sunday, March 5, 2023.

Tinubu showed appreciation to the people of Nigeria and his well wishers across the world for the goodwill, solidarity and support messages.

He showed his admiration for the mandate given him by the people of Nigeria and his desire to uplift the standard of the country.

Tinubu commended leaders in the black continent, heads of Commonwealth and others across the world who accepted his emergence as president with heartwarming messages.

He, therefore, wishes to reciprocate the gesture of those who offered to work with his government.

He wrote: “The past few days have been a whirlwind for me and for many Nigerians. We have, through our electoral process, consolidated our democracy as a nation, and, by the Grace of Almighty God, I have been given the mandate to lead the nation for the next four years as its President.

“I deeply appreciate the congratulatory messages that have come in from friends and well-wishers from home and abroad. The messages of goodwill and solidarity have been so overwhelming for me to mention you all by name.

“I am particularly grateful to many world leaders from our African neighbours, our friends in The Commonwealth, and from the other parts of the world who welcomed my election with heartwarming messages.

“The support and assurance I have received from the international community is a reminder of the important role Nigeria has in the world and an encouraging sign that the rest of the world remains interested in constructive and beneficial cooperation with the Federal Republic of Nigeria. As President-elect of this great nation, I say thank you.

“To those who have extended the arm of friendship, I offer mine in return. This is a good time to believe in the Nigerian dream; a good time to believe in our renewed hope. The Nigerian eagle shall fly high.”
