The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, on Monday gathered in their numbers to celebrate the inauguration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as 16th President of Nigeria.
Members and supporters of the party converged at the APC secretariats in each of the nine federal constituencies in the state.
Adorned in Ankara fabrics branded with the picture of Tinubu and the logo of the APC, the joyous members of the party sang victory songs vigorously while others dined and wined.
The federal constituencies had their celebration events at Osogbo, Ede, Iwo, Ikire, Ife, Ilesa, Ijebu-ijesa, Ila and Ikirun with massive turnout.
The party members expressed optimism that Tinubu’s tenure will bring about remarkable development in the country judging by his previous performance.
At the party’s secretariat in Osogbo, members of the party were thrown into musical frenzy by a live band.
Speaking on the excitement in the state over the presidential inauguration, the Special Adviser, Youths and Sports to Ex-governor Adegboyega Oyetola, Aremo Adegboyega Adelabu said the celebration is going on simultaneously across the state.
The APC chieftain noted that this was the first time a core progressives member is sworn in as the president of Nigeria, hence the celebration.
He assured that with the new progressives government, there will be all round development as planned.
His words, “we are celebrating the emergence of All Progressives Congress (APC). You will agree with me that this is the first time a core progressive will be the president of this country. This calls for celebration. As progressives, we are celebrating the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the 16th president of Nigeria.
“No one can doubt the ability and capability of Asiwaju when it comes to development. We have seen what he was able to achieve in Lagos State. He touched all the aspects of developmental projects in Lagos including security, education, health. With this, we are sure that he will replicate this at the federal level.
“I appreciate the immediate past governor of Osun State, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola for giving the opportunity of celebrating with Jagaban here in Osun. Those of us that cannot go to Abuja, we are celebrating here.”
