Senator Kabiru Gaya has said that the emergence of President-elect Bola Tinubu is God’s answer to the country’s prayers for good leadership.

He said this while speaking during a joint prayer session organised by APC Stakeholders Forum on Wednesday night.

Mr Gaya, who represents Kano-South senatorial district in the Senate, said Mr Tinubu’s antecedents as governor of Lagos were evident.

He expressed optimism that if he could replicate what he did in Lagos in terms of infrastructure and grow the state’s economy despite odds at the national level, Nigeria would be a better place for all.

Mr Gaya noted that Vice-President-elect Kashim Shettima also worked hard while governor of Borno.

According to the lawmaker, Tinubu and Shettima are a perfect match that can bring Nigeria to greater heights and make it the envy of other nations.

“I am sure God will guide them to bring in place professionals as cabinet members to work with and form a good government in the interest of the country and its citizens,” stated the senator.

Abudumumini Aminu, chairman of the board of trustees of the forum, said the joint prayer session, which cut across religious faith, was to pray for a successful tenure for the in-coming administration.

He said it was also to pray for national unity, peace, progress and the country’s development.

Mr Tinubu will be sworn in as president on Monday.

Since the beginning of the Fourth Republic in 1999, all inaugurations have been held on May 29.

The most recent presidential inauguration was held on May 29, 2019, when President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office for his second term.

Recitation of the presidential oath of office is the only component in this ceremony mandated by the Nigerian Constitution.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria administers the presidential oath of office.

Since 1999, five chief justices have administered the oath at six scheduled public inaugurations.

The ceremony will be held at Eagle Square, Three Arms Zone in Abuja.
