Abuja, March 16, 2023 – Bola Tinubu, the President-elect, on Thursday reiterated his promise to run an inclusive government.

He also promised to assemble competent men and women as well as young people from across the country to build a safer, more prosperous and just Nigeria.

Tinubu gave the assurances in a statement he signed in Abuja on Thursday titled: “Nigeria: At the cusp of renewed hope”.

He said his administration would pursue an active digital economy where young people would have ample space to fulfil their dreams and aspirations.

Tinubu stressed the need to shun partisanship and join hands with him to build the Nigeria of our dream.

 “I have set my course and mind on the leadership of this nation.

“We have important work to do and I am committed to getting that work done for the benefit of all the people, whether or not they voted for me or even voted at all.

“This is not the time for continued acrimony and partisan recrimination.

“These negative things can incite strong passions, but they are not the pathway to a better nation. Only unity and national commitment can serve that purpose.”

 “I realise that I am the servant of a larger purpose. As such, I have gone straight to work.

“My team and I have been daily engaged in discussions and meetings refining our ideas and policy solutions so that we can begin actively working toward the common good the very first day we assume office.

“This great project called Nigeria beckons to us all.

“I ask that we work together as Nigerians for Nigeria. Those who voted for me, I ask that you continue to believe in our policies and plans for the country.

“I also ask that you reach out to your brothers and sisters who did not vote as you did. Extend to them the hand of friendship, reconciliation and togetherness.

“To those of you who did not vote for me, I ask you to believe in Nigeria and the capacity of your fellow citizens, even those who voted differently than you.

“The better Nigeria I seek is not just for me and my supporters. It is equally yours.

“I do not ask you to abandon your political preferences. That would be undemocratic. I do beseech you to answer the call of patriotic duty as the loyal opposition.

“Remain loyal to the cause of a greater, more tolerant and just Nigeria. I too shall keep faith in this objective.

“If we all play our proper roles, we shall begin the task of rebuilding our national home together, day by day, brick by brick notwithstanding our political differences.

“As such, the victory of national progress will belong to all of us. The triumph of our nation’s democracy shall cite all of you as its very authors. This is how things should be,” he said.
