Bola Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos state was elected on February 25, 2023 along with his Vice; His Excellency, Kashim Shettima, a former Governor of Borno state on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in an election adjudged to be freest and fairest in recent times.
In a message of congratulations on the occasion of Presidential Inauguration and swearing-in held today at Eagle Square, Abuja, AWCS expressed its confidence that the new President would bring his many years of political and leadership experiences for the development Nigeria.
The message signed by the State Coordinator; Dr. (Mrs) Theresa Edem reads “The South-South Grand Patron; Chief Sunny Ibanga, State Executives and Local Government Coordinators and indeed the entire members of Asiwaju Women Cooperative Society (AWCS), Akwa Ibom State Chapter, most sincerely write to felicitate with His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, on the occasion of his swearing-in as the new President and Commander-In-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria today, May 29, 2023. We also wish to congratulate His Excellency, Sen. Kashim Shettima, GCON on his swearing-in as the new Vice President of the country.
As citizens who have been following keenly the political developments in Nigeria, we can say authoritatively that your victory and subsequent swearing-in today as President of Nigeria is well-deserved. Your emergence as our President is indeed a product of hard labour, political consistency as well as your firm belief in Nigeria’s democratic development”.
Reminiscing on President Tinubu’s efforts at stabilizing democracy in Nigeria, the women group continued “Your Excellency, Mr. President, we won’t forget how hard you fought against military dictatorship, risking your life and that of your family for the return and sustenance of the democratic dispensation we all enjoy today. Through your political sagacity and leadership dexterity, you nurtured a Movement that metamorphosed into a Political Party in Nigeria.
By proper management, using Lagos state as focal point, you experimented human capital development, mentoring legions of future leaders. The Political Party, the All Progressives Congress you midwifed grew gradually to become a National Party and today, God has made it possible that you emerge on the same platform as the President of Nigeria against all odds!
“We are confident that this is the beginning of sustainable progress in our dear country. We pray the same Almighty God who has kept you alive to witness the fulfilment of your lifetime dream, give you the strength, good health and wisdom to make Nigeria a better place for all of us and even our unborn generations”.
