The Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, has said he has no doubt that President Bola Tinubu will perform excellently as the country’s helmsman, given his antecedent.
The Oba made the declaration on Thursday in a congratulatory message to Tinubu, which he signed on behalf of Royal Court of Benin, Benin Royal family and the people of Edo State.
He called on the President to give priority to youth development, while praying that God and the ancestors would back the President to deliver on his mandate.
“Your swearing-in as the 16th President of this great country was a result of the fulfilment of destiny, the people’s will and, the wish of God Almighty who made it possible (for you) to assume the mantle of leadership.
“From your antecedent, we have no doubt that you will excel in this position and fulfil your mandate to Nigerians. We, however, plead with Your Excellency to give more priority to youth development in this country,” the monarch said.
