The wife of the president, Mrs Aisha Buhari, on Thursday, described the victory of Tinubu as the will of God.
She said this when she received the wife of the president-elect, Sen. Oluremi Tinubu, and the wife of the vice president-elect, Hajiya Nana Shettima, on a thank-you visit to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
She said, “Regardless of our interests and diversity, we should all accept it as the will of Almighty God; we wouldn’t have done it without his grace.
“It is a victory for all Nigerians. I am optimistic that the president-elect will not betray the trust and confidence that Nigerians repose in him. It is now time to move on and focus on the path of `a renewed hope’ for Nigerian women and youths,” she said.
She however reminded the wife of the president-elect of the challenges ahead and prayed for God`s guidance and direction as she prepare to take over the affairs of the Office of First Lady of Nigeria.
Sen. Oluremi Tinubu had earlier informed the gathering that they were at the Presidential Villa on a thank-you visit to appreciate the support and wise counselling of the first lady towards the success of APC at the presidential election.
“We want to thank you sincerely for how you’ve been able to bring us together as a campaign team for the APC, especially the women presidential campaign team. You really showed a lot of wisdom, dexterity and courage in the way you put us together.
“I remember coming here to ask for your permission and also to solicit for support when we were about to begin the campaign,” she said.
The meeting was attended by the wives of some APC governors and associates of the first lady.
