President Muhammadu Buhari has described Nigeria’s President-elect Bola Tinubu as an asset that will run an effective government when he takes over the administration of the country.
The President stated this while facilitating with the Lagos State Governor on his 71st birthday.
He gave this assurance in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina on Tuesday.
“As the President-elect prepares to take over mantle of leadership at 71, the President affirms that his political pedigree from the 90’s, active role in party politics, being elected Senator and later Governor of Lagos State, and diligent involvement in structure of leadership at the Executive and Legislative levels for many years, will serve as asset for good and effective governance.
“President Buhari believes Asiwaju’s warmth, friendliness and generosity have set the pace for a network of friends, home and abroad, that will shape his presidency with requisite expertise to guide the economy, and consolidate on the investments of past leaders, particularly in people-first development and infrastructure.
“President Buhari prays for the wellbeing of Asiwaju and his family,” the statement read.
