Elders ‘ll be available for consultations— Fasoranti
By Jubril Bada
The leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, has congratulated the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on his victory in the just concluded presidential election in the country.
Fasoranti advised Tinubu to avoid making mistakes made by his predecessors by ensuring that every ethnic group was united in his administration.
While urging aggrieved parties to seek redress in court and allow Tinubu to settle down, he told the President-elect to also prove him right.
This was contained in a congratulatory letter addressed to Tinubu by the Afenifere leader, and made available to journalists at the weekend.
According to the letter, Fasoranti commended Tinubu for his doggedness and determination to achieve victory at the poll.
The letter read, “I did marvel at your doggedness, self-determination, self-assuredness, strong belief in self, ability to overcome daunting and ever surging challenges.
“I was also amazed at God’s grace on you that gave you the strength of character and such abundance of energy, that enabled you to navigate through all the ever emerging intricate problems, and made it possible for you to, against the wishes of some people, traverse successfully all the states of the federation, during the energy sapping marathon presidential campaigns. I am, indeed, glad to know that your hard earned victory had a very good national spread.”
Pa Fasoranti also called on all concerned Nigerians and the international community, who might be aggrieved, one way or the other, not to do anything that would set Nigeria on fire but take legal means to seek redress.
He expressed assurance that the elders would always be available for “consultations and any other assistance when the need arises.”
