A former President of All Nigerian American Congress (ANAC), Ambassador, Amina Temitope Ajayi, has expressed confidence that the President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will revamp Nigeria’s economy.
Ajayi, who is one of the United Nation’s eminent peace ambassadors made this known yesterday while speaking to journalists in Lagos at a lecture and prayers session with the Aseyori Islamic Foundation and the Lagos State with the Iman General, Nupe, Lagos State communities.
The prayer was also to commemorate the president-elect’s 71st birthday anniversary.
According to her, as a business consultant, with link to foreign investors, since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) pronounced Tinubu as the president-elect, many foreign investors have indicated their readiness to invest in Nigeria.
She explained that the president-elect has administrative acumen, patriotic zeal, business wizardry, political dexterity and diplomatic finesse, to make Nigeria truly the ‘Giant of Africa.
Ajayi, who is fondly called Mama Diaspora and is the Honorable Chair of the Global Connections for Women Foundation (GC4W), called on Nigerians to support the president-elect.
She said she was thankful to God that the elections went on well and that Nigeria has remained peaceful and united, adding that those were among their objectives for the prayer.
She also said the prayer was to support Asiwaju so that there will be a seamless transition of power to him and that God will be with his administration.
Ajayi, who is also the Ambassador of Goodwill for the State of Arkansas USA and to the World said: “The president-elect’s call for prayers on his birthday shows that his election as the next president of Nigeria is divine. That is the power of the Almighty God that He chose him. The duty of Nigerians is to support him in our own little way, the way they do in America. The corporate body, the churches and mosques and rich people are the ones responsible for the welfare of the people under their corporate social responsibilities.
“That is what I have been doing ever since I came to Nigeria because I am a foreign investor and every foreign investor, church or mosque, we should take it upon ourselves to assist the masses as we are the closest to them than the government.
“Asiwaju is in the Holy land right now praying to the Almighty God because of the crown that God has laid upon him, I believe that he will revamp Nigeria’s economy. We should support him and keep praying that what Asiwaju, the president-elect, has started, he will be able to manifest by the grace of Almighty God.
Our messiah has arrived. You will see the inflow of foreign direct investment. I am one of the consultants for Fortune 500 in the USA.
“Do you know how many people have approached me that they are ready to come to Nigeria now? The foreign investors in America, China, India Turkey, and Carter are all very happy now.
“They are ready to invest and revamp Nigeria. By the time, he assumes office, our nickname, ‘the Giant of Africa’, will come back where we can work around the world and be respected as Nigerians.”
She appealed to the president-elect to have three ministers in every ministry, the first one is the senior minister, the second is the minister of state and the third one should be a youth minister.
“Let us start using their intellectual property, they are smart. They are very creative.
“Look at the election and what would have happened. They said an idle man is the devil’s workshop. My young adults got carried away.
“Nigerians should look at Asiwaju Tinubu as an angel sent to us from above. Democracy, they say, is the government of the people by the people and for the people.
“The masses have spoken. We have the president-elect. Let us remember our former national anthem: Nigeria we hail thee, though tribe and tongue differ, in brotherhood and sisterhood we all stand.
“We should all hug each other, we should suck it up and knock it out and embrace each other and support the new regime that is about to kick start.
“Tinubu has the heart to help people. He assisted me when he was in Mobil and assisted me in lifting oil from Kwaibe to Eket.
“What do you think he is going to do for these young adults? He is a man that loves women. He loves the young adults too. I was a young adult and a woman when he assisted me. I was about to buy myself propel barge, but they said the business was not for women.
“So I was about to quit but my brother, Asiwaju, said you cannot quit, come on and join them. That was what I was doing before I went into exile because of June 12.
“To be honest, he has suffered for this democracy everybody is enjoying.
“We all ran away. We have our manifesto, June 12 democracy manifesto. So what we have been doing since that time, the dreams of Awolowo, our late father, the dream of our late father, Abiola is not being passed on the baton and it is on the Jagaban, Asiwaju.”
Ajayi, who is a business consultant and foreign investors disclosed that since INEC pronounced Asiwaju as the President-elect, many foreign investors have indicated to her, their readiness to invest in Nigeria, stating that the President-elect has administrative acumen, patriotic zeal, business wizardry, political dexterity and diplomatic finesse, to make Nigeria truly the ‘Giant of Africa.”
