ABUJA, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Asiwaju Bola Ahmed has emerged as Nigeria’s President-elect after winning the 2023 presidential election.
The former Lagos State Governor polled over eight million votes to defeat his rivals in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP).
Tinubu was seen in a jubilant mood after Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC Chairman, made the announcement on live tv.
The man fondly called the Asiwaju of Africa has now reacted to the win via a widely brodcast acceptance speech.
He said: “Whether you are Batified or Atikulated, Obidients, Kwankwasiyya or have any other political affiliation, you voted and struggled for a better Nigeria, more hopeful nation and I thank you for you participation and dedication to our democracy.
“You decided to place your trust in the democratic vision of a Nigerian founded on a shared prosperity and one nurtured by the ideas of unity, justice, peace and tolerance.”
Speaking about his wife, a Senator, he noted: “To my lovely wife, Oluremi Tinubu, you the Senators should not expect her back. She’s going to become my housewife and my first lady. Enough of lending of the other room.”
