Aides to ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under the aegis of the Network of Ministerial Aides (NETMA) have congratulated the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and vice president-elect, Kashim Shetima, on their victory at the February 25 presidential election.

The group stated this in a congratulatory letter addressed to the president-elect and signed by the spokesperson of the group, Dr. Philip Ugbodaga who is a special assistant to the Minister of State, Budget and National Planning, which was made available to journalists.

It noted that Tinubu’s victory rekindles hope that Nigeria has joined the ranks of countries amongst the community of nations dedicated to advancement, growth, and development.

The group said the election has helped in no small way to demonstrate the resolve of Nigerians to completely expunge the dividing lines of ethnicity and religion from our polity.

“We salute your tenacity, audacity, sagacity, and political staying power that ensured your ascension to the highest office in the land sixteen years after the end of your outstanding tenure as the governor of Lagos state.

“Your victory is even more unique as it came exactly 30 years after Nigerians joyfully elected a same-faith ticket for the first time in our electoral history through the Abiola-Kingibe presidential run in 1993,” the letter reads in part.
