_”We are not makers of history. We are made by history”_ — Martin Luther King Jr.
My beloved father, mentor, guardian angel and role model, *His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR,* you have always been a man of history, made by history, shaped by history and prepared for history.
Today, you have made another history with your swearing-in as the 16th President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Undoubtedly, this is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our sight.
On behalf of the entire MOGAJI & TINUBU Descendants of Lagos, I heartily congratulate you on this occasion of your inauguration as the President and Commander-in-Chief of the most populous and powerful black nation in the world.
We are most certain that, with your God-given talent and leadership sagacity, which you have demonstrated over and over again, our nation Nigeria, is definitely on the path of greatness and nothing can set us back again.
Nigeria is set to occupy its place of pride among the committee of nations.
To the discerning hearts, it would be little surprising that, on the day of your election in February, there were showers of rain over the land; on the day you were declared winner in March, there was another shower from Heaven and today again, on your inauguration day, the Heavens opened and released new showers of blessings upon the land of Nigeria. These are no mere coincidences. These are sure confirmations of Heavens approval of your coming to the throne and symbols of the natural blessings that your government will bring upon Nigeria. These symbolise the RENEWED HOPE! May Nigeria rejoice under rule.
On this note, I want to once again congratulate you and our loving mother, Distinguished Senator Oluremi Tinubu OON, the graceful First Lady of Nigeria as well as our able Vice President, Distinguished Senator Kashim Shettima, GCON on this landmark attainments.
Daddy, without doubt, you have made our Matriarch, your beloved mother, Alhaja Abibatu Mogaji very proud and we are sure she would be smiling heartily now in her grave because, in you, her aspirations and dreams have come to fulfilment.
As you settle down to steer the ship of the Nigerian state, may God Almighty guide, protect and lead you right. May your tenures be peaceful, prosperous, progressive and beneficial to all and sundry.
