Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has acknowledged that the President-elect, under the All Progressives Congress (APC) had, over the years, demonstrated a consistent fidelity to progressive and welfarist ideals, and an ability to build bridges across several divides.
Professor Osinbajo swore that such attributes are needed, especially at this time, to reach out to disaffected sections of the society and to meet the inspirational expectations of the young people who have shown such a strong desire to impact the democratic process in a positive way.
In a message congratulating Asiwaju Tinubu and his Vice President-elect, Senator Kashim Shettima, the Vice President expressed strong belief that Tinubu and Shettima would not allow whatever setbacks they may have experienced to truncate their strong desire to determine the future course of the national journey.
“Through thick and thin, we must all remain focused on the objective of birthing the Nigeria of our dreams.
“I pray that Almighty God will help you to fulfil the progressive mandate of our Party, as well as your various plans to improve the security, welfare and happiness of all Nigerians.”
