“I will serve you; be your servant and not your leader. I will work with you and make Nigeria a great country,”
“Finally, I thank the Nigerian people for their abiding belief in our democracy. I shall be a fair leader to all Nigerians. I will be in tune with your aspirations, charge up your energies and harness your talents to deliver a nation that we can be proud of,” he added.
Addressing his contenders and fellow running mates, Bola Tinubu said he had the utmost respect for them and called on them to join forces with him to build a better Nigeria.
“To my fellow candidates, former VP Atiku, former governor Kwankwaso, former governor Obi and all others, I extend the hand of friendship. This was a competitive, high-spirited campaign.
“You have my utmost respect.
