Philip Agbese, the member-elect representing Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadigbo federal constituency, has congratulated Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his emergence as President-elect.
Agbese said Tinubu’s victory is historic – a “big win for Nigerians and defeat for enemies of the nation who are out to truncate our nascent democracy”.
He also congratulated other winners at the last polls, including his soon-to-be colleagues at the National Assembly, describing it as a new dawn in the nation.
Agbese said the tasks before Tinubu is enormous hence the former Lagos State Governor must hit the ground running quickly.

He added that the incoming president must justify the trust bestowed on him by Nigerians and unify the nation at a critical time where it is leaning towards religious lines.
The media entrepreneur said the president-elect must work for all Nigerians irrespective of any inclination and must be a father to all.
While expressing confidence in the capacity, track record, and competence of Tinubu to bring ‘renewed hope’, peace, progress, and prosperity to Nigeria, Agbese urged him to be magnanimous in victory.
The member-elect pledged that the 10th National Assembly will support the President-elect to deliver.
