The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Tuesday, said Nigeria would experience effective governance under the administration of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
He noted that Tinubu had the political pedigree and experience to achieve this by May 29 when he would take over the leadership of the country.
The President said this in a statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
He said, “As the President-elect prepares to take over mantle of leadership at 71, the President affirms that his political pedigree from the 90’s, active role in party politics, being elected Senator and later Governor of Lagos State, and diligent involvement in structure of leadership at the Executive and Legislative levels for many years, will serve as asset for good and effective governance.
“President Buhari believes Asiwaju’s warmth, friendliness and generosity has set the pace for a network of friends, home and abroad, that will shape his presidency with requisite expertise to guide the economy, and consolidate on the investments of past leaders, particularly in people-first development and infrastructure”.
He also felicitated with the President-elect for clocking 71 on Wednesday.
The statement added, “President Buhari prays for the wellbeing of Asiwaju and his family.”
