The Nigerian Ambassador to Mexico, Ambassador Adejare Bello has assured that Nigerians would be more united than ever before during the administration of the incoming President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Tinubu won the 2023 presidential election and would be sworn in as the 16th Nigerian president on May 29 next month.
Bello said his conviction is based on the Tinubu’s antecedents which has been attested to by many Nigerians both at home and in the diaspora.
He described Tinubu as a leader who can hold all the regions of the county together; consolidate on the existing welding efforts, and inspire hope, patriotism, oneness among its constituents.
Bello said “It is true that over the years, various administrations have struggled with the challenge of harmonising disparate interests and managing dissensions.” But what really matters is the will and the managerial amplitude which Tinubu possesses to respond to the problems.”
“Tinubu will make sure that appointments are not lopsided which will endear his administration into the warm embrace of all Nigerians”, Bello said.
He described Tinubu as one Nigerian who knows the country so well and is quite abreast with its cultural and historical developments, noting that the President-elect is surrounded by brilliant Nigerians with sound minds in terms of intellect and understanding of the delicate issues in the country in different aspects of the economy. He said Tinubu would play politics of “me and my people “.
He noted that given the divisive campaigns sponsored by opposition parties, especially around the Muslim-Muslim ticket of Tinubu and his Vice, Shettima, APC now needs to demonstrate that the politics of uniting the country require unconventional approaches.
Bello disclosed that since Tinubu is not a religious bigot, it will not be difficult to bring everybody on board regardless of religion or ethnic background.
“With Tinubu in the saddle, the relationship among Nigerians will be organic one built on the pillars of friendship, empathy and togetherness and devoid of the political bitterness. It is therefore a little wonder that he is so widely accepted by the people on the other side of the Niger from the wild reception his campaign train received all over the country.”
Bello therefore wish Tinubu good health and a successful governance more than he was able to do in Lagos.
