Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has assured that President Muhammadu Buhari will ensure smooth transition of power when his tenure expires in 2023.
Tinubu said this on Tuesday while fielding questions from State House correspondent after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He reassured Nigerians that the President respects the constitution and would vacate office at the expiration of his tenure on May 29, 2023.
“The chances are as bright as a midnight star and we will continue to work for a better Nigeria.
“We cannot interject politics and assumption in everything, we have a nation to build.
“We have a baton to pass. You can depend on Buhari that he will not spend one hour beyond his tenure. He will comply with the constitution”, he said.
The APC chieftain also charged all well-meaning Nigerians to remain united in the wake of the current security challenges confronting the nation.
He said all Nigerians must put aside their religious, political or ethnic differences and cooperate with security agents to surmount the problem.
“Yes, every nation will go through these curves and difficult times but how we communicate it to the people and what are the areas to make it easier for the people to bear, those are ideas we have to be able to exchange with the leadership of the country.
“It calls for coming together to reduce banditry, move for unity and be able to bring a better Nigeria to the people because the welfare of our people is extremely important.
“This also calls for cooperation and understanding, effective security and effective giving of information,” he stated.
