The president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, delivering a speech on his 71st birthday promised to be committed to rebuilding the country and renew the “hope of the Nigerian people”.

Tinubu revealed the greatest birthday gift he has ever received is the chance to lead the country.

The former Lagos governor said his campaign promises were not mere words to win over citizens but rather a bond with them.

He said;

“With such a privilege already granted to me, I will not go so far as to suggest I am due any birthday presents this year. I have already been given the greatest gift,” he said.

“A chance to lead and fulfill destiny. An opportunity to champion your aspirations and to bring about the Nigeria of your dreams.

“I will, instead, use this day as an opportunity to reiterate my commitment to the great and important task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the hope of the Nigerian people. I campaigned hard and made important promises.

“Those promises were not mere words; professed glibly or cynically to win support. They represent a bond that binds me to the task of creating a better Nigeria for the benefit of every Nigerian, whether you voted for me or not.”

Bola Tinubu is trying to bring the country together after hotly contested elections in which the ruling All Progressives Congress had been accused of instigating violence and outright rigging to win the elections. Tinubu himself had been linked to a narcotics case in the United States and the opposition have dragged the matters to the election tribunal to contest the election results.
