Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham has penned an open letter to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, following his inauguration on Monday.
The actress, a staunch supporter of President Tinubu, took to her Twitter handle to share the letter, explaining her reasons for supporting his candidacy despite the heavy criticisms and backlash she received online.
In the letter, Toyin disclosed that she supported Tinubu because she has personally witnessed his leadership in Lagos and firmly believes that he will perform even better as the President of Nigeria.
She urged him to listen to the concerns of the people and address their fears about the future in order to restore public confidence.
Speaking further, she advised him to learn from the mistakes of his predecessors and strive to unite the country.
Her letter read,
“Your Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR,
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.”
