Bola Tinubu and Peter Obi Bola Tinubu and Peter Obi

As many people anticipate the inauguration of the President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which is set for Monday, May 29, 2023, many people have shared their views.

Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus took to her Instagram page to share a video of the stage for the presidential inauguration's concert and many people reacted to the video in the comment section.

While many express disbelief in the president-elect Bola Tinubu being inaugrated as president of the country becoming a reality, others have urged Peter Obi of the Labour Party to forget about his election petition as Tinubu toiled to get to the stage he currently it.

According to an Instagram user who goes by the handle @exclusve_lqt, becoming a president in Nigeria is no joke as there has to be committment, determination, perseverance and bravery.

The user stated that it took Buhari 30yrs to become a president (85-15), took Yardua 30yrs (87-07), took Obasanjo 30yrs (79-99), and it also took Tinubu 30 years in politics (93-23) before finally having his dream of being a president realised.

exclusive_lqt: "You people actually thought obi had a shot, you think Naija presidency is what you can just wake up in 8months to attain because GenZ loves you, it took Tinubu 30yrs (93-23)to achieve, took Buhari 30yrs to achieve (85-15), took Yardua 30yrs (87-07), took Obasanjo 30yrs (79-99), only Jonathan was lucky & that's because his boss Yardua died. Obi came too late & his time can never come. For the benefit of those reading, stàrt now if you want to be President in 30yrs. It takes about 3 decades to build the support & alliance needed across this vast country to win 25% of 24 of our 37 domains. Let that sink."
