Don’t pity me, Tinubu tells Nigerians

The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, on Sunday night, asked Nigerians not to pity him over the enormous task of nation building before him.

While alluding to challenges bedevelling the country, Tinubu said he was well aware of the task he set out for and do not expect pity from Nigerians.

Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor, stated this during inauguration dinner and gala night.

He rather asked Nigerians to him accountable on his promises, adding that he campaigned to be elected because of the challenges bedevelling the country.

“We have corruption, insecurity and many problems confronting us… but don’t pity me. I asked for the job. I campaigned for it. No excuses.

“I will live up to expectation, I promise you,” Tinubu said.
