Nigerians will beg Tinubu to contest for second term, says Betta Edu


Betta Edu, national women leader of the All Progressives
Congress (APC), says Nigerians will beg Bola Tinubu, president-elect, to
contest for a second term after four years in office.


Speaking on Thursday in an interview with Channels
Television, Edu said Tinubu is fully prepared to “hit the ground running”
immediately after assuming office.


She said the former Lagos governor will work on the “low
points” of the outgoing administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.


“I bet on anything, Nigerians would plead with Asiwaju Bola
Ahmed Tinubu, four years down the line, for a second term,” she said.


 “The first point we
must understand is that Nigeria is a work in progress. If you listen to the
speech of President Muhammadu Buhari today at the state banquet hall, he stated
very clearly that he has fought a good fight.


“He said he is handing over Nigeria to someone who he
believes will continue from where he stops and do better.”


The former Cross River commissioner said Tinubu has a
clearly written set of programmes that will be carried out in the first 60 days
in office.

 “If you know Asiwaju
Bola Tinubu, he is a deep thinker and doer. One who is very strong in terms of
analysing and strategising,” she added.


“I can boldly tell you for free that the next 60 days have
clearly been spelt out by Tinubu — what he hopes to do, what he hopes to
achieve, at what point and where.


“He fully understands the task ahead of him. He is fully
prepared. He wants to hit the ground running.”


The president-elect is expected to be sworn in on May 29.
