Nigeria entrepreneur and Chairman of Heirs Holdings Transcorp, Tony Elumelu has taken to his official Instagram page to share photos of himself and President-elect Bola Tinubu.

In his post, he expressed optimism to work with Tinubu's administration in empowering the youth. He said this when he received the president-elect at his home on Tuesday, March 7.

He also mentioned that he discussed ways the incoming administration will support talented Nigerian youths.

"Last night, I was honoured to receive the Nigerian President-elect ???????? @officialasiwajubat at my home. We discussed ways in which the incoming administration must empower and support our immensely talented Nigerian youth. We have so much young potential to unleash!"

Tinubu's visit comes exactly a week after INEC declared him as winner of the just concluded presidential election held on February 25.
