Reactions As President-elect, Tinubu Promised Nigerians He Will Fulfill All His Campaign Promises

The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, vowed that he would fulfil all the campaign promises he made when he assumes office as President from May 29.

Tinubu, whose campaign manifesto was tagged ‘Renewed Hope’, made the promise in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, while inaugurating the Magistrates’ Court Complex built by Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration and named after a former Chief Judge of the state, Justice Iche Ndu (retd.).

"The reform is underway, and I am here with the hope of your collaboration. I promise to commit myself to fulfill all political promises I have made,” said the President-elect.

He emphasized that the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable and that he, along with Nyesom Wike, the governor of the state, is committed to promoting it. The President-elect also pledged to ensure fairness to all and fight poverty vigorously, whether it be poverty of thinking, poverty of standard, or poverty of reasoning.

Tinubu praised Wike for constructing the beautiful courthouse, noting that there is no better way to fight corruption in the judiciary than by taking care of judges and ensuring their comfort.

Tinubu stated, “I take a different angle to what Wike has done here today. It is fighting corruption, and you have been contributing very well to this.

It is imperative that judges are not expected to live and work in deplorable conditions. This is just one of the changes that our policy think tank must make to ensure a fair justice system and combat corruption.

If we want to prevent corruption among judges, we need to pay attention to their welfare and provide them with safe and comfortable working conditions. We must ensure that they dispense justice fairly without any hazards.

It's time to think about the value we provide for the value we receive. If we expect judges to resist the temptation of corruption, we must not put them in situations where they are tempted, such as by forcing them to pay for cars they cannot afford without consumer credit.
