Diamond Group Nigeria (DGN), a Non-Governmental Organisation, has described the emergence of Sen. Bola Tinubu as President-elect, as a new dawn for Nigeria.
This is contained in a congratulatory message to Tinubu and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima on their victory in the just concluded presidential election.
The congratulatory message made available to newsmen in Akure on Friday and signed by the group’s Chairman, Mr Toyyib Musa-Omoloja, said that the victory reflected the wishes of majority of Nigerians across the country.
It said that after the hard-won election, the president-elect and his team should strive to unite the country that had been divided along ethnic and religious lines during the electioneering period.
“The incoming government must take note of the loud sentiment of the youth demographic which could be discerned from their voting pattern in the elections.
“The youth and of course the generality of Nigerians desire a new Nigeria that all of us will be proud of,” the group said.
It also said that since there was no victor and no vanguished in the presidential election, other contestants should congratulate the president-elect and support him to achieve the rebirth the country craves for.
The DGN also advised those with genuine concerns to approach the courts rather than put democracy at risk through unguarded actions and utterances.
“We pray that the new Nigeria, which the “Renewed Hope” mandate of President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, symbolises, will usher in great blessings for Nigeria and Nigerians,” the group said.(NAN)
