Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, Nigeria’s former military head of state, has congratulated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory at the presidential election.
IBB also applauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting a peaceful election on Saturday, February 25, 2023.
Babangida also commended Nigerians for their active participation in the presidential polls which determined the president-elect Tinubu.
In a statement released on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, Babangida added that he believes Tinubu will deliver on his campaign promises due to his track record.
“It’s a thing of joy that this is happening in my lifetime. I can confidently say that Tinubu is a good man for the job.
“I have no doubt that Tinubu would perform as the President of Nigeria. For some of us, who have been there before, I know that there is still more work to be done, and I believe that Tinubu has what it takes to take Nigeria to the next level.
“We have much potential as a nation; what we need is a good direction so that we can continue to be seen as the giant of Africa. Indeed, our best is yet to come, but we can get to where we ought to be with determination and commitment.”
