Tinubu: Nigerians have chosen well-Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended Nigerians for electing Bola Ahmed Tinubu as his successor. This was contained in his farewell speech to Nigerians today.

“You are the best candidate among all the contestants and Nigerians have chosen well. The last eight years have been an exciting experience in my desire and commitment to see a Nigeria where public goods and services are available and accessible within a united, peaceful and secure nation,” Buhari said.

The farewell speech is one of his last assignments as a democratically elected President of Nigeria. Buhari said, “I address you today, in my last assignment as a democratically elected President of our great and well-endowed nation, with a deep sense of gratitude to God, a great deal of appreciation to the Nigerian people and a modest sense of fulfilment.”

Describing Tinubu as the best candidate among all the presidential contestants in the 2023 general elections Buhari said, “This year we witnessed the most keenly contested Presidential Elections since the first Republic and this demonstrates that our democracy is getting better and more entrenched with each election.”

Speaking further, Buhari said, “As your President, I call on all of us to bear the strength of our individualism, the power of our unity, the convictions of our beliefs to make Nigeria work better and together with one spirit and one purpose.”

The outgoing president also congratulated Tinubu. He said, “You have indeed worked for this day and God has crowned your efforts. I have no doubt that your passion for excellence, reliance on competence, fairness in relationships, commitment to equity, loyalty to the country and desire for Nigeria to be globally relevant would come through for you, under God’s guidance, as you lead our country to levels higher that I am leaving.”
