Oluremi Tinubu, the president-elect’s wife, has assured Nigerians that her family is blessed by God and does not need the nation’s money to thrive.
She said this during the Sunday interdenominational church service held at the National Christian Centre in Abuja.
The wife of the incoming president-elect stated that everyone shares in the nation’s prosperity and that they would utilise it for good.
She begged Nigerians to pray for them, saying that they would need God’s help in order to live up to their countrymen’s expectations.
Nigeria’s riches is the commonwealth of everyone, according to Tinubu, a departing senator who represents Lagos Central in the National Assembly. It is everyone’s property. My family is blessed by God. We don’t need Nigeria’s riches to live; we just need to act morally. And I swear to you here, with your assistance and the assistance of God, who will lead this country in the correct direction.
Asiwaju is 71 and I will be 63, she said, noting that she would be one of Nigeria’s oldest first ladies. I wager that I’ll be one of Nigeria’s oldest first ladies. We need God’s favour in addition to everyone’s willingness to fulfil Nigerians’ expectations.
“Today, God has fully established his authority and set his stamp on it, just as he did on the night of the primaries. Because I prayed to God that you were there when I saw that 1,271 people had cast ballots.
“I was brought to the depths of humility. And the fact that Nigeria will be through its seventh straight democratic transition indicates that the country is at a wonderful period right now.
Yemi Osinbajo, the departing vice president, former head of state General Yakubu Gowon, Secretary to the Government of the Federation Mr. Boss Mustapha, and senator-elect Godswill Akpabio were among the dignitaries that attended the church service.
