What President Tinubu said during visit to Awujale of Ijebu

What President Tinubu said during visit to Awujale of Ijebu

President Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, paid a visit to Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, the Awujale and Paramount Ruler of Ijebuland, at his palace in Ijebu Ode.

Speaking during the visit, Tinubu expressed his gratitude to the Ogun State monarch and people for their support during the 2023 presidential election.

He praised the state’s citizens for their commitment to the electoral process.

The President said, “It is a homecoming and I owe so much to all of you and there is so much to thank you for. Because of the way you have taken me and the way you’ve responded to me, all I can say is thank you.

“To many of you, thank you for being there for me and being there for the country. You demonstrated so much loyalty, so much commitment and voted at a very crucial time.

“Your monies were confiscated. The cash swap didn’t work. It was terrible then. I realised that and I came to Ogun State to invoke the spirit of freedom for which we are noted for.

“I invoked that spirit twice. The spirit of Baba (referring to Awujale). The spirit of Baba – Emi l’okan (it’s my turn), that’s Baba. The spirit for being blunt and that is him.

“And the second spirit is that of money (Naira scarcity), ‘ama dibo ama wole’ (we will vote and we will win) even if there is no money. And that, ever since, has been the spirit that is driving me to serve.”

The Awujale urged Nigerians to have patience because Tinubu would lead them to the promised land in his response.

He begged for God to grant Tinubu health so he could keep his word.
