Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham, has written an open letter to Nigeria’s President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In the letter, Toyin noted that her support for Tinubu to become president wasn’t because of religion or ethnicity but the trust she has in his leadership ability.
However, the actress was quick to note that the president has so much work to do to eradicate the many challenges the country is faced with.
A part of the letter reads;
“Your Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR,
“Let me start this letter by offering my hearty congratulations on your confirmation as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“It is the highest honor any Nigerian can receive to be given the people’s mandate and asked to lead Nigeria. The road to the presidency has taken several years and a lot of hard work on your part, and to have your efforts crowned by success is Allah’s way of rewarding all of your good deeds and private dua’s.
“People have asked why I openly supported your candidacy when others opposed you. I have received insults and threats to my life and business because of my personal choice, which I have never forced on anyone else.
“I will continue supporting you because I have experienced your leadership in Lagos and your achievements as a public servant. I have also admired your ability to adapt to the times and how you have supported the dreams and ideas of so many younger people.
“That said, I will always side with the people and Nigeria over anyone, and I think I speak for all of us when I say we need peace and stability in the country.
“The president’s office is a big responsibility, requiring humility, intelligence, and courage to govern successfully. These are qualities I know you have. I also know you understand better than anyone the seriousness of your role as president.
” After all, you have been preparing for this role since your NADECO days in 1993 and the role you took in defending M.K.O. Abiola’s candidacy as president during the June 12 protests.”. (www.naija247news.com).
