INEC’s Certificate of Return is like World Cup trophy to me — President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Nigeria’s President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has described the certificate of return presented to him by INEC as a “World Cup” trophy.
Tinubu spoke during a visit to the palace of Rilwan Akinolu, oba of Lagos, on Sunday. Last week, INEC announced Tinubu, candidate of the APC as the winner of the presidential election conducted on February 25.
Speaking at the palace, Tinubu promised not to disappoint Nigerians. “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.”
