Nigerians in Diaspora Organization, Americas (NIDOA) has congratulated President-elect, Bola Tinubu on his ‘historic’ election and impending inauguration as the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Gatekeepers News reports that NIDOA’s congratulatory message was contained in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman, Dr Ezekiel Macham and Secretary, Dr Sunday Robert-Eze on Tuesday.
The group noted that Tinubu’s election victory “is a testament to the power of powerful visioning backed up by meticulous planning and execution.”
It reads: “You symbolize the aphorism that the road to success is often rough, long-winding, and littered with obstacles. While others cut and run, only the tough and deep have the resilience to stay the course to achieve ultimate success.
“As a courageous pro-democracy activist during the dark days of military rule, a former third republic Senator, a former Lagos State governor, and a party leader, you have straddled the Nigerian political firmament like a colossus for the past three decades. Given your wealth of experience, we have no doubt that you possess the capacity to tackle the major challenges confronting our nation in the areas of security, power, the economy, health, education, external dependence, debts, corruption, transportation, nepotism, youth unemployment, and poverty.
“As you are aware, Nigerians have been rated as the most educated immigrant in the United States even as we continue to achieve astounding feats as seasoned professionals in the Americas and beyond.”
NIDOA further pledges its support for Tinubu’s administration on national development.
“The mission of our organization, NIDO Americas, is to harness Nigeria’s vast human capital for the social, economic, and infrastructural development of our country and its people. We stand ready to partner with your administration to leverage our rich pool of talents and expertise for national development.”
