The statement reads, “We seize the momentous occasion of the 71st Birthday Anniversary of Nigeria’s President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, _Jagaban Borgu_, to speak new life, new wisdom, new ideas and new vive into him and into a new era in Nigeria.
“We renew our congratulations to the co-founder of Action Congress (AC), on the heels of attaining the historical title of *Last Man Standing*, after the evil hurricane of current political pretenders swept away the wish of the people in 2003.
“We salute the master strategist and trail blazer in forensic evidence at Nigerian Election Tribunals for leading the struggle to recover Edo, Ekiti and Osun States from the bossom of moral abyss.
“We congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari for working towards and getting a worthy successor, as we congratulate All Progressives Congress (APC), for breasting the tape successfully in executive and legislative elections.
We look forward, in the Tinubu Administration, to an emphatic transformation with clear successes in security, education and an expanded economy that makes nonsense of the expression ‘visa ban’, even as we expect consolidation of the gains of the Buhari Administration in foreign relations.
“We look forward to a balanced government in which the South East APC which out-performed every other party in the zone, sponsors a competent Senate President, nominated by its caucus and acceptable to all senators .
“We appreciate the sacrifice of foregoing the household Tinubu Birthday Colloquium, which has been an annual event since 2007, to allow moods inch back to normal after a keen presidential contest, won by APC and look forward to future editions.
“As Tinubu takes up the mantle of Nigerian Leadership in 61 daystime as President & Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, may Nigeria witness a period of self actualization with compatible structures, better secured territories, successful economy, pride of citizenry as defined by residence in the constitution and a complete elimination of colonial vestiges.”
