Back from Vacation: “I’m strong, ready for tasks ahead” – President-elect Tinubu

The President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has expressed readiness to kick-start work ahead of the May 29th handing-over date.

Recall that the President-elect returned to the country on Monday evening after about a month trip to Paris, France.

The Asiwaju was received yesterday by a mammoth crowd of enthusiastic associates and supporters who thronged the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, where his plane touched down.

The President-elect was in company with his wife, Senator Remi, and son, Seyi.

Among those at the airport to receive him were Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima, House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila as well as Governors Simon Lalong (Plateau) and Abubakar Sani-Bello (Niger), former Borno State Governor Ali Modu-Sheriff.

Also at the airport were former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu, the All Progressives Congress, APC Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Abubakar Kyari, Deputy National Chairman (South), Barrister Emma Enekwu, and National Woman Leader, Dr. Betta Edu, amongst others.

Speaking to the mammoth crowd who followed him home, the President-elect said, “I’m happy to be back. I have rested, I’m refreshed and I’m ready for the task ahead.

“Forget about what the rumour mill may have told you. I’m strong, very strong”, he stated.

Asked about his plans for the country, he said he had been consulting and planning with a view to putting together a strong team so he could hit the ground running once he assumes office on May 29.

The President-elect left the country on March 21 for Paris on a vacation after a hectic campaign and election season.
