The National women leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Betta Edu, has said that Nigerians will beg president-elect, Bola Tinubu, to contest for a second term after he completes his first tenure.
The former Commissioner for Health in Cross River state stated this during an interview with Channels Television on Thursday night May 25.
“I bet on anything, Nigerians would plead with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, four years down the line, for a second term.
The first point we must understand is that Nigeria is a work in progress.
If you listen to the speech of President Muhammadu Buhari at the state banquet hall, he stated very clearly that he has fought a good fight. He said he is handing over Nigeria to someone who he believes will continue from where he stops and do better.
If you know Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, he is a deep thinker and doer. One who is very strong in terms of analysing and strategizing. I can boldly tell you for free that the next 60 days have clearly been spelt out by Tinubu — what he hopes to do, what he hopes to achieve, at what point and where.
He fully understands the task ahead of him. He is fully prepared. He wants to hit the ground running.”
The president-elect is expected to be sworn in on Monday, May 29.
