Present-elect, Bola Tinubu has said his Certificate of Return symbolizes that each Nigerian has the ability to achieve their dreams.
He made this known on Wednesday after receiving his Certificate of Return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja on Wednesday.
Tinubu promised to work day and night to make the country better, adding that he is committed to the progress and development of the country.
He said: “The road has been long, yet we worked it. The battle has been hard fought, yet we won it.
“By taking this sacrifice, I accept a sacred duty. I will work day and night to make Nigeria better. We are committed to the progress and development of Nigeria.”
Earlier, the electoral umpire presented a Certificate of Return to Tinubu, the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
The INEC Chairman and the Returning Officer of the Federation, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, made the presentation to the former governor of Lagos and his running mate.
Yakubu first invited the Vice-President-elect, Kashim Shettima, and presented the Certificate of Return. He later invited the President-Elect to sign and collect the Certificate of Return.
The presentation came a few hours after Tinubu was declared the winner of the February 25 presidential election.
The 70-year-old politician garnered 8,794,726 votes to defeat his closest rival, Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, who scored 6,984,520.
