President Bola Tinubu has expressed plans to continue to count on the support of Nigerians who voted for him and those who did not support him during the Presidential election.
Tinubu made this known, while speaking during the 100th anniversary of the Ansarudeen Society of Nigeria, held at the ADS Mosque on Friday in Surulere, Lagos State.
The ADS is celebrating its 100 years of establishment in the country on Dec. 21, 1923.
According to the President who appreciated the Muslim society for its support, said since the assumption of office, he has taken the destiny thrust on him by God to serve Nigerians.
”I thank the Ansarudeen for its support for me and the governor during the election. I do not take it for granted and it serves as stimuli for us in government to be focused.
”We are committed to enthroning a better society for our citizens irrespective of ethnic, religious or geographic differences. The various policies already in place are expected to bring great succour to our people.
”We know their pains and we are addressing them holistically. Nigerians should be patient for the benefits to start manifesting.
”It is instructive that the Ansarudeen has attained 100 years through stability, sustainability and systemic strategy to maintain its mission and vision.
“This is a testimonial to what focused planning can achieve in a society,” Tinubu said.
Speaking during the event, Sheik Abdulrahman Ahmed, National Missioner of ADS, urged political officeholders to continue to give priority to the needs of the people who voted for them.
Ahmed said that there were a lot of expectations from the people that leaders must fulfil, adding that it’s the responsibility placed on them by God.
”In a similar vein, I call on the ordinary citizens to continue to obey constitutional authority and pray for them.
“Praying for leaders is a means of attracting positive things to our lives. Let’s continue to pray for our leaders and we the religious leaders will continue to do our part to the glory of God,” he said.
