The All Progressives Congress APC in Oyo state has assured that the new administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will meet the yearning and aspiration of most Nigerians in terms of national rebirth, economic growth and life abundance even as it urged citizens to support him (Tinubu) with prayers in view of the herculean task ahead.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state, became the nation’s 16th President on Monday when he was sworn-in at the Eagle Square, Abuja by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Kayode Ariwoola, as the immediate successor to former President Muhammadu Buhari who has just completed his two terms in office.
Oyo APC in a statement issued on Monday and made available to journalists in Ibadan by its Publicity Secretary, Olawale Sadare, expressed delight at the “peaceful dimension which the exchange of baton between Buhari and Tinubu took despite threat and intimidation from some opposition elements who have not hidden their desperation to hijack power at all cost.
“There is no doubting the fact that President Bola Tinubu is here put Nigeria on the track of accelerated growth and development. Our new has demonstrated a great deal of passion, resilience and zeal to rewrite the story of Nigeria and thus reposition it as the true Giant of Africa. As we give deserved credit to former President Muhammadu Buhari who did his best to fix Nigeria in the last eight years, we can guarantee that the next four years of APC at the center would be full of success stories.
“We, at Oyo APC, are fully behind our national leader and President even as we urge all citizens and residents of the country to remain optimistic and be ready to play their part as the Nigeria’s hope has just been renewed. With the kind of peace and tranquility which heralded the grand finale of the democratic transition and the huge presence of well wishers, drawn from across the globe, it is safe to say that Nigeria would be great again.
“While we congratulate Mr. President and his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu as well as the vice president, Sen. Kashim Shettima and the national leadership of our great Party (APC) on this monumental feat, we also assure them of our full cooperation and support as they begin a new chapter in our national life which, we believe would usher in unprecedented growth and development for our dear country (Nigeria).” Oyo APC stated.
