The Chairman of the Southern Senators Forum, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele has described Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as a bridge builder and one of the most detribalized Nigerians.

According to Bamidele, who is also the Chairman, Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Tinubu Presidency will foster greater unity, peace and security, true federalism and general development of the country.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by his media office to newsmen in Abuja, Bamidele informed that education, health care system, industrialization, economic prosperity, national integration and international solidarity, would be improved under the incoming administration.

The Senator described Tinubu’s victory in the keenly contested presidential election as a well-deserved reward for his esteemed courage, resilience, doggedness, hard work, unwavering determination, decades of building bridges across the nook and cranny and strong faith in God.

He enjoined Nigerians, especially the opposition presidential candidates and their teeming supporters to join hands with Tinubu in building a New Nigeria that the continent of Africa and the rest of the world can be proud of.

‘’It is high time Nigeria took his rightful place in the comity of nations. I implore the people of Nigeria, especially his opponents and their teeming supporters to join hands with Tinubu and his team, to enable him replicate his laudable and lofty achievements in Lagos State in building the New Nigeria that the continent of Africa and the rest of the world can be proud of,” he stated.

According to him, “the special grace of God upon Tinubu, his age-long vision to transform the country, his extensive political structures and networking skills, his philanthropic gestures and goodwill and the pragmatic execution of a most strategic, scientific and issue-driven campaign across the length and breadth of Nigeria contributed remarkably to Tinubu’s victory at the just concluded elections.”

Bamidele added that “Nigeria as a nation is well favoured to have a leader like Tinubu as its President because he is an adept problem-solver, a world class technocrat, a visionary and reliable team player, a compassionate father and mentor to many great leaders across the country and a democrat with remarkable progressive credentials.”

He assured that Tinubu, upon resumption of office as the President “will herald the realization of a New Nigeria of our dream because he has a formidable team of highly committed and thorough bred technocrats who have deep scientific understanding of the varying challenges that l people are facing.”

“Asiwaju’s victory is a sign that there is no short cut to success, but hard work,” he said.
