Tinubu in his message to Nigerians to celebrate his 71st birthday promised not to renege on his promises made to Nigerians while seeking for their votes.
While describing his mandate as a greatest birthday gift ever, the former Lagos state governor promised neither to take the opportunity lightly nor squander it.
He said: “This year in particular, I see this day as one of deep reflection. The spiritual meaning and significance of the holy month of Ramadan matter to me much more than the celebration of any individual milestone.
“Yet, this is my first birthday as the President-elect. A few weeks back, Nigerians gave me the honour of a lifetime. In exactly two months, on the 29th of May my term in office will begin. It is a rare privilege indeed, and one that I do not take lightly and shall not squander.
“With such a privilege already granted to me, I will not go so far as to suggest I am due any birthday presents this year. I have already been given the greatest gift. A chance to lead and fulfil destiny. An opportunity to champion your aspirations and to bring about the Nigeria of your dreams.
“I will, instead, use this day as an opportunity to reiterate my commitment to the great and important task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the hope of the Nigerian people.”
Recalling his journey during the electineering campaign period, Tibubu said he campaigned hard and made important promises.
He added that those promises were not mere words; professed glibly or cynically to win support.
“They represent a bond that binds me to the task of creating a better Nigeria for the benefit of every Nigerian, whether you voted for me or not. I have prepared for this moment all my life, I will not fail.
“Henceforth, may growth, hope, peace and compassion stand proudly and ring loudly throughout the land. May we find the right way and the good courage to turn our beloved country into a strong, just and prosperous home for all.”
He thanked God Almighty for his life so far and for all the opportunities and doors he has opened to him along the way of his journey till this moment.
Tinubu also expressed his appreciation to all his lovers across the globe for the goodwill messages on the occasion of his 71st birthday.
“I received your kind words with great pleasure and was profoundly touched by the depth of your care and support,” he added
