"President Buhari believes Asiwaju’s warmth, friendliness and generosity have set the pace for a network of friends, home and abroad, that will shape his presidency with the requisite expertise to guide the economy, and consolidate on the investments of past leaders, particularly in people-first development and infrastructure.
As the president-elect prepares to take over the mantle of leadership at 71, the President affirms that his political pedigree from the 90s, active role in party politics, being elected Senator and later Governor of Lagos State, and diligent involvement in the structure of leadership at the Executive and Legislative levels for many years, will serve as an asset for good and effective governance."

The president also prayed for the well-being of the president-elect, members of his family and associates.
