2023 election most credible in Nigeria’s history – Tinubu

 President Bola Tinubu on Thursday made his first appearance

at the National Executive Council meeting of the All Progressive Congress (APC)
since his inauguration as President, where he adjudged the election that
brought him to power as the most credible ever in the history of Nigeria. He said: “Yes, we are facing challenges in court, but I
think this is the most credible election in Nigeria. So, we must congratulate
ourselves. As a democrat, those who cannot accept the results of a free and
fair election do not deserve the joy of victory.”Speaking about the affairs of the party, which has produced
the former governor of Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje, as chairman, Tinubu said the
party has a responsibility to promote unity, stability, and love among members.


According to him, being elected to serve is an opportunity
to “fulfil your dreams and the dreams of our founding fathers.”


The President also acknowledged that there are governance
issues that need to be tackled head-on.


“We are taking it head-on; we must oil the wheel, grease it,
and we are. I have submitted ministerial lists to Senate for screening and
approval. We are in the process of fully establishing the government of the
people, for the people, and by the people.


“I can see a number of my friends here, and you have not
been able to see me. It is what you all fought for to bring me here. We have
governance issues, and you will not see me as often as you want to,” he stated.


Speaking further, he said Nigeria is going through
challenges, which he had sufficiently addressed in his broadcast.


He said his administration is ready to re-engineer the
economy of this country, adding, “Our policies are for the people, not to
punish the people.”


Tinubu also digressed a little into the international
political scene. He said: “I sent messages to Europe and America yesterday. To
our partners, I ask, How can you handle a barking dog, a mad dog, and prevent a
barking dog from eating from the plate of your enemy? We are hungry, and the
continent depends on Nigeria. We need help, but not at the expense of our joy,
peace, and happiness.”


He cautioned the party’s leaders about the need for a united
front, stressing that the party was in their hands.


“Let us show the rest of the country that we are united for
a purpose, and if we deviate from the path, posterity will not forgive us,” he
