Toyin Abraham Urges President Tinubu To Avoid The Errors Of His Predecessors
The actress has provided some words of wisdom to the next President.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Toyin Abraham, a Nollywood actress, and director, has sent a thought-provoking open letter to Nigeria’s newly elected President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
She emphasized in her passionate letter that her support for the new administration was not based on religious or ethnic factors but rather on her confidence in his leadership qualities.
The actress also emphasized the country’s present substantial difficulties and asked the president to tackle them proactively.
In her message, the director expressed joy that Tinubu had realized his long-held ambition of becoming Nigeria’s president.
Despite the criticism and abuse, she got for her unflinching support, Toyin urged the president to address the young population’s discontent and reclaim their confidence.
She emphasized that her support for his candidacy was a personal decision, and despite receiving insults and threats to her life and career, the actress is devoted to his leadership based on her direct experience with his governance in Lagos and his track record as a public servant.
Her letter addressed to “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR,” states, “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 honour 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.”
As Toyin points out in his open letter, all eyes are on President Tinubu as he embarks on his new duty, with hopes that he will listen to the advice and strive hard to avoid the errors his predecessors made.
Under his leadership, the country anxiously awaits the execution of viable policies to overcome the difficulties and restore peace.
