Parliament paved way for my presidency, says Tinubu

Written by on May 29, 2024

President Bola Tinubu has attributed his victory in the 2023 election to his stint in parliament in the botched Third Republic.

Tinubu was elected into the Senate to represent Lagos Central District on the platform of the Social Democratic Party.

He was a Senator from December 5, 1992, till November 17, 1993, when the Third Republic collapsed following the takeover of government by Gen Sani Abacha.

Speaking at the flag-off of the ‘Nigeria, We Hail Thee’ anthem at a joint sitting of the Senate and House of Representatives in Abuja on Wednesday, the President urged the lawmakers to build and sustain the nation’s democracy.

He said, “Without this house (parliament), probably, I may not have found the path to the Presidency. It started all here. Please, continue to collaborate and work together. We have no other choice. It is our nation.”
