The average Nigerian, decent, hardworking unseen and anonymous, are the heroes of this glorious moment. Without their faith in democracy and belief in a better future, the past presidential election would not have happened and we would not be celebrating the inauguration of a new president.

Several Congratulations are in place right now. Congratulations to Millions of Nigerians at home and abroad. Congratulations to Africa. Nigeria is ready to lead.

Today, we celebrate. Tomorrow, we turn our energy, ardour and ability to the task at hand – building a better life for the good people of our beloved land.

A new era is upon us. All here are blessed by the hand of great Providence to witness the reawakening of our nation. This noble moment will endure long after we have expired.

A new president has been inaugurated. A new government established and a commitment to build a new Nigeria has been consecrated in every bosom of the people.

We celebrate the coming of President Buhari. In him, we have a leader who is as principled, determined and passionate. He is like those leaders who have lead their nations to greatness in times past.

We celebrate because his election was a testament to the power of human decency and the sovereignty of the people over the weighty mass of power, money and awful privilege. Despite heavy inducements to move otherwise, the people voted for their better destiny in the last elections.

The average Nigerian, decent, hardworking unseen and anonymous, are the heroes of this glorious moment. Without their faith in democracy and belief in a better future, the past presidential election would not have happened and we would not be celebrating the inauguration of a new president.

We celebrate Nigeria’s friends from Africa and around the world for joining us today. Your presence is an expression of goodwill that shall not be forgotten. Your presence underscores for us the importance that Nigeria holds in the community of nations.
That we have accomplished a peaceful transition of administrations of different political parties serves as a historical landmark.

We all must pray for the success of President Buhari and his government. They come into power at a difficult moment and will grapple with multiple challenges.

May God give President Buhari the requisite wisdom and vision to accomplish the sober and grave tasks now thrust upon him. May he govern openly, fairly and with equity and compassion for all. May his administration take the first mighty step in constructing a new and better Nigeria for all of her people. May he begin to lay the foundation for a better house for all.

At one point, darkness seemed to have brought us to the edge of national calamity. Now the strength of goodness and the power of freedom have brought us to the end of that darkness.

Fate now ushers in a period of light and revival that will guide us to the upper road and a higher purpose.

We thank God for this chance for it was not guaranteed by our labor and toil but comes to us from His mercy.

We dare not squander the good thing given to us in hand for that thing is nothing less than the dawning of a new day in a new Nigeria.

God bless each and every one here. God bless the friends of Nigeria near and far and, most of all, may God bless President Buhari, his government and the people of the federal republic of Nigeria.
