The President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said on Wednesday his victory in the just concluded presidential elections is for all Nigerians.
The former Lagos State governor stated this during the presentation of Certificate of Return to him and the Vice President Elect, Kashim Shettima by Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu in Abuja.
Tinubu said: “I stand before you the president-elect, and yes, that is special, but, I am no different than anyone of you. If I can do this, you can do better, you must do better.
“Our destiny as a people and nation depends on our ability to shed the artificial restrictions of bias and prejudice so that we live fully unto our democratic creed.
“That no one is innately superior or entitled to greater rights and opportunities than any other Nigerian. To you the people, especially the youths, I will work day and night. I will work to the utmost of my ability to make Nigeria better.
“I know that some of you did not vote for me and I know how much you must be hurt especially because your favourite presidential candidate is not the one standing here receiving this certificate but I want you to know that my doors are open. I want to assure you most especially the youths that we’ll build a country of our dream together.”
