The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said on Saturday that “Nigeria is complex country to navigate through.”
He spoke at a special prayer session at the Ansar-Ud-Deen Central Mosque, Wuse 2, Abuja, which was organised as part of events marking the 60th birthday of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
The occasion was also graced by the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, representing the President.
This was according to a statement on Saturday by the Speaker’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, titled: ‘60th birthday: Continue to Serve Nigeria, Says Buhari…Gbajabiamila Remains a Patriotic Nigerian.
In his remarks delivered by Gambari, Buhari noted that Gbajabiamila, as Speaker of the House of Representatives, “ensured a good working relationship with the executive arm of the government against the notion in some quarters that the National Assembly should be antagonistic to the executive.”
Gambari said Buhari had always stood for a free and fair process, which, according to him, was why the President was happy when Tinubu emerged as the presidential candidate of the APC in such a process.
Gambari also said the President wanted to assure Nigerians that he did not have any intention to subvert the constitution to extend his tenure in office.
