Nigeria’s President-elect, Ahmed Bola Tinubu has said that the certificate of return presented to him by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is like a “World Cup trophy” to him.
Speaking, when he visited the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akinolu, Tinubu vowed not to let Nigerians down.
“To all the monarchies seated, may God provide you with strong health for you. God will not allow our country to perish. We will not be used as a tool to disgrace you. I will not let you down,” he said.
“The journey that we embarked upon and we have returned home with a certificate — it is like our own World Cup — and I thank you all for the effort,” he added.
The electoral umpire, last week, declared Tinubu, winner of the presidential election conducted on February 25 2023.
