ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – The South-East Destiny Movement for Bola Ahmed Tinubu (SDMBAT) says it is confident that President-elect Bola Tinubu will form an inclusive government as a detribalized Nigerian.
Mr. Ekene Enefe, the founder of SDMBAT, urged the president-elect to use his government to address Nigeria’s unity, economic, security and corruption challenges by making inclusion his watchword.
“I know Tinubu is a detribalised Nigerian. We are sure he will form an inclusive government. We urge him to consider loyalty, competence and inclusivity as he settles down to form his team,” stated Enefe, while speaking with journalists in Awka on Tuesday.
The group also stated that Mr. Tinubu did not rest “per se” while away on vacation “because he is a workaholic” while welcoming the politician back to the country after several weeks in France.
“The SDMBAT wants to join millions of Nigerians to welcome our great leader and president-elect, Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, back to Nigeria after weeks of deserved rest.
“We know that while he was away, he was not resting per se because he is a workaholic, so he has returned to continue the task of setting up a government and rebuilding Nigeria,” Mr. Enefe added.
Mr Enefe served as the Deputy Director of Contact and Mobilization for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council in the South-East.
He said Mr. Tinubu was back to concentrate on constituting his cabinet and preparing for his inauguration.
The APC chieftain said it was gratifying to see that contrary to insinuation about the state of health of the president-elect, he was healthy, fit and ready for work.
“We believe in this mandate. We saw it before the party primary. That is why we started the SDMBAT movement about 18 months ago to mobilise support for BAT in South-East and beyond,” Mr. Enefe explained.
He said Nigerians were waiting to see Mr. Tinubu replicate his Lagos achievements across the country, expressing confidence in his ability to deliver.
