Elections: Tinubu appreciates world leaders, others for congratulatory messages

PRESIDENT-ELECT Bola Tinubu has thanked world leaders, organizations, and individuals for the flood of congratulatory messages since his election victory was announced on February 25th.

The flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), and others in the fiercely contested poll, which triggered a flood of congratulatory messages from all over the world.

In an appreciation tweet, the former Lagos State governor said the stream of congratulatory comments since his declaration has been “overwhelming”.

“I deeply appreciate the congratulatory messages that have come in from friends and well-wishers from home and abroad,” he began in a tweet yesterday.

“The messages of goodwill and solidarity have been so overwhelming for me to mention you all by name. I am particularly grateful to many world leaders from our African neighbours, our friends in The Commonwealth, and from other parts of the world who welcomed my election with heartwarming messages.

“This a good time to believe in the Nigerian dream; a good time to believe in our renewed hope. The Nigerian eagle shall fly high.”
