Avoid mistakes of your predecessors, unite Nigerians -Toyin Abraham to Tinubu
Award-winning actress and movie producer, Toyin Abraham Ajeyemi has written an open letter to Nigeria’s new president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The mother of one, known to have openly thrown her weight behind the ruling party during the last elections noted that though many people believed that she did so because she was offered money, this is not so.
“I made a choice to support you out of a free will, as have many other Nigerians. I supported you and continue to support you because I have experienced your leadership in Lagos and your achievements as a public servant,” she said.
The mother of one stated further that the president’s office is a big responsibility, one that requires humility, intelligence and courage to govern, and all of these, Tinubu possess.
She however observed the last elections showed that not everyone is happy with the new government, not because they hate him in person, but because the system has failed them.
She advised that now that the elections are over, the new president sees himself as the father of all, listens to the concerns of the people, addresses their fears, unites Nigerians, and avoids the mistakes of his predecessors to change the narrative.
“The country needs hope and real progress, and you have an opportunity to restore hope in our leaders and country. Highlighting some of the problems which the country is presently facing including inflation, poverty, and insecurity, the popular actress urged the new president “to hire the most intelligent minds, listen to their advice and give them the freedom to make their contribution to nation building.”
She then concluded her letter by saying “The faith we put in you as president must be rewarded with progress. Protect your legacy by being honourable.”
