He said he was thankful that he is still alive to witness the rebirth.
Fasanmi said, “I am indeed thankful to God to be alive to see the beginning of a second re-birth for Nigeria under your leadership.
“The cankerworm of corruption that has arrested the development of our beloved country and rendered its institutions dysfunctional is being vigorously tackled.
“In addition, other infrastructural deficiences especially in the energy sector are gradually being eliminated.
“I note with pride also that the insurgency in the North-east is being confronted with determination.
“More than at any other time since the beginning of the insurgency in 2009, the rebellion is being checked and will, hopefully be ended soon.
“I wish your administration success in tackling these and several issues faced by Nigeria.
“I have no doubt that you are determined to succeed and that the majority of our nationals support unequivocally your quest to re-make Nigeria into a country where honesty, integrity, equity, justice and fairness are the guiding principles and way of life.
“I pray that the vision which progressives have for Nigeria will be fulfilled under your leadership.”
