The national woman leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Betta Edu has said Nigerians will beg the President-elect, Bola Tinubu to run for a second term in office after four years in office.
Edu disclosed this in an interview with Channels Television on Thursday.
According to her, Tinubu is fully prepared to “hit the ground running” immediately after assuming office.
The women leader said Tinubu will work on the “low points” of the outgoing administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I bet on anything, Nigerians would plead with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, four years down the line, for a second term.
“The first point we must understand is that Nigeria is a work in progress. If you listen to the speech of President Muhammadu Buhari today at the state banquet hall, he stated very clearly that he has fought a good fight.
“He said he is handing over Nigeria to someone who he believes will continue from where he stops and do better.”
Edu said Tinubu has a clearly written set of programmes that will be carried out in the first 60 days in office.
She said, “If you know Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, he is a deep thinker and doer. One who is very strong in terms of analysing and strategising.
“I can boldly tell you for free that the next 60 days have clearly been spelt out by Tinubu — what he hopes to do, what he hopes to achieve, at what point and where.
“He fully understands the task ahead of him. He is fully prepared. He wants to hit the ground running.”
