Congratulations to the Nigerian President-Elect. The Jagaban of Borgu, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. His emergence as the president-elect is not surprising considering the efforts and energy poured into the campaigning process.

Ahmed Tinubu did not only campaign, he paid attention to engaging personalities and royal fathers through meetings, I recall a midnight meeting he held with the Emir of Kano, Etsu Nupe, Emir Borgu, and King Appolus Chu at Hilton Hotel Abuja, where he formerly declared his intention to them and seeks their blessings.

He didn’t just stop there, he paid a courtesy visit to the palaces of the traditional ruler across Nigeria to campaign, informing the kings and their council of chiefs of his intentions and seeking their royal blessings and support.

Some of these visits he went in person while some were through powerful and respected delegations who go from kingdom to kingdom to campaign for their principal.

One of such occasion, the Emir of Borgu, his royal highness, Bar. Haliru Dantoro, kitoro the IV, the DG campaign coordinator, Dr. Adebayo Shittu, the former minister of communications, and other members of the delegation paid a courtesy visit to the palace of his royal highness king Dr. Appolus Chu in Eleme, Rivers state to seek blessings for Tinubu’s intention to contest as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
