I dedicate my victory to greater Nigeria – Tinubu

The President-elect, Sen. Bola Tinubu, says his victory at the Feb. 25, presidential election is a victory for all Nigerians, committed to a greater society.

Tinubu made the remark after receiving his certificate of return from Prof. Mahmud Yakubu, INEC Chairman, on Wednesday, in Abuja.

The former two-term Lagos State governor assured that he will work hard to make Nigeria better for all.

“The road has been long, yet, we walked it, the battle has been hard fought, yet we won it.

“More importantly, I realise that I am just a servant of a larger purpose,” he said.

The President-elect added that the certificate was more than a document confirming the positive outcome of an election.

According to him, it is a document that symbolises our collective democratic attainment and even loftier aspirations.

It represents the impending transfer of the most sacred duty and trusts from one person to another.

“This certificate also symbolises that each of you has the ability to achieve what others believe is impossible.

“I stand before you as president-elect, and yes, that is special, but, I am no different than anyone of you.

“If I can do this, you can do better, you must do better.

“Our destiny, as a people and nation, depends on our ability to shed the artificial restrictions of bias and prejudice so that we live fully unto our democratic creed.

“That no one is innately superior or entitled to greater rights and opportunities than any other Nigerian.”

He expressed optimism that by dint of hard work, determination and unyielding belief in a noble endeavour, we could achieve the best of things.

He added that by taking the certificate of return, he had assumed a sacred duty he would never ignore.

“To you the people, especially the youths, I will work day and night.

“I will work to the utmost of my ability to make Nigeria better.

“For this to be a victory at all, it cannot simply be a victory for one man or even one party, it must become a victory for all Nigerians.

“I know many did not vote for me, and you are disappointed that your candidate is not where I now stand.

“I understand your hurt; to you, I extend the embrace and comfort of one family member,’’ he said.

He added that this great project called Nigeria beckons to us all, saying that it was bigger and more important than any partisan divide.

Tinubu asked his supporters to continue to have faith in the mission that he has articulated.

He also asked those who didn’t support him, not to allow their disappointment to keep them from realising the historic national progress.

By joining hands and hearts, he said, we can achieve historic national progress.
