Tinubu, Nigeria’s long-awaited messiah –Yoruba Ronu Group



The Chairman of Yoruba Ronu Group, Prince Diran Iyantan, has congratulated the President-elect, Sen. Bola Tinubu, for winning the Feb. 25 election, saying he is the long-awaited messiah for Nigeria.

Iyantan, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, stated this in a statement signed by Mr Steve Otaloro, Director of Communications, Yoruba Ronu Group, on Friday in Akure.

He described Tinubu and the Vice President-elect, Sen. Kashim Shettima, as the best team for Nigeria at this material time.

Iyantan, who said Tinubu’s presidential victory was fought and won through “thick and thin”, noted that he is an ideal person for the job and whose time has come.

“Your victory at the presidential election has filled me with immense joy. I take this opportunity to congratulate you on your well-deserved success.


“You must be highly contented with this position as someone from a poor background fought the odds to lead the most populous black nation on earth with the largest economy in Africa. You have undoubtedly worked very hard to achieve it.

“Asiwaju Tinubu, the Jagaban of Borgu, please accept my warm congratulations on your victory and my best wishes for your success as you prepare to take up the responsibilities and challenges of your high office.

“As you embark upon your new responsibilities, I wish to assure you on behalf of Yoruba Ronu Group the continued friendship and sympathetic interest of the members and people of the South-West,” he said.

Iyantan, former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in Ondo State, promised that the group would continue to protect and guide the President-elect towards achieving a successful tenure.

“We look forward to working with you not only to develop closer relationships between us but also to concert our efforts in the cause of peace and the brotherhood of all peoples of Yoruba extractions worldwide.


“As a group fighting for the cause of our people, we are very passionate about anything and everything that will promote the Yoruba race and her people.

“Once more, congratulation on your well-deserved promotion. It’s terrific to see that your hard work and perseverance have paid off.

“Without a doubt, Nigerians will benefit from your wisdom and administrative experience acquired over time in the private and public sectors,” Iyantan stated.

Tinubu Should Review RECs Appointment – Ex-INEC Chairman, Jega



A former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega, has called on President Bola Tinubu to review the appointments of the commission’s Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs).

Jega said Tinubu should review their appointments due to concerns that some of the RECs are partisan.

About a month ago, Tinubu had nominated 10 RECs, with the Senate confirming their appointments.

However, some of the RECs have been accused of being involved in partisan politics.

Reacting to the criticisms, Jega said the non-review of their appointment sends the wrong signal.


Featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, Jega said: “I think there is no doubt that if the President were listening, my advice would be to immediately review the appointment of the Resident Electoral Commissioners that was passed by the Senate recently.

“It’s very, very important because clearly, not only does it send a wrong signal about the government’s intention to improve the integrity of elections, it also suggests, you know, that there is indifference with regards to protecting the independence and impartiality of the election management body.

“I would want to believe that Mr President was either misinformed or is not really furnished with all the necessary details with regards to these appointments.”

“We will guarantee that educational institutions receive the necessary resources to effectively carry out their statutory responsibilities.

“One of my first actions as President of Nigeria was to sign the Student Loan Bill into law to put this into action.

“Under my leadership, and as I have outlined in my manifesto, no student will be forced to drop out of school due to an inability to pay tuition.”
