The President-elect Bola Tinubu vowed never to break the trust millions of Nigerians have in him as the nation’s President after his May 29 inauguration.
He made the promise on Thursday, May 25, 2023, in his acceptance speech after President Muhammadu Buhari conferred on him the National Honour of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR) at the presidential villa, Abuja.
He assured that he understands the magnitude of the honour bestowed upon him and the responsibility that comes with it.
“I understand the magnitude of the honour conferred on me today and the task ahead. Nigerians deserve no less.
You (Buhari) have charted the course and I shall not disappoint you,” he said.
Tinubu becomes the 16th person to be given the GCFR Honour following in the footsteps of Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo, Shehu Shagari, Olusegun Obasanjo, Abdulsalami Abubakar, Ibrahim Babangida, Ernest Shonekan, Sani Abacha, Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan and Moshood Abiola.
