Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, a senior member of the All Progressives Congress, has expressed pleasure with President Bola Tinubu’s performance since his May 29 inauguration, saying it has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was well-prepared for the position before his election.
The statement of congratulations given to Femi Gbajabiamila, Tinubu’s chief of staff, on his new position on Friday paid tribute to the former lawmaker who previously represented Delta State’s Ika Federal Constituency.
Before joining the APC in 2019, Ojougboh served as the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Vice-Chairman (South-South) and begged with Nigerians to have patience with the new leadership.
“We know that Tinubu is prepared for the job, and we do not doubt that Gbajabiamila will also help him deliver on his promises to Nigerians.
“I, however, appeal to Nigerians to have faith in the Tinubu government and give it time to birth a new nation with a renewed hope of prosperity and development,” the Delta grassroots politician said.
Continuing, Ojougboh hailed the appointment of the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, saying he was the right man for the job.
While pleading with Gbajabiamila not to betray the trust of the president, the APC chieftain further urged him to remember that his new position was also a reward for his loyalty over the years.
“You are surely the right man with proven track records for the office and your appointment is well deserved. Your efforts and loyalty to Tinubu over the years have never been in doubt. You sure deserve every honour you are getting today.
“Please use your wealth of experience to help the president deliver his campaign promises to Nigerians. I assure you of my support. But be reminded that you are holding your present position in trust for the people who have high expectations from President Tinubu’s presidency,” he stated.
