The Senate said, “While we rejoice with Your Excellency, we are not oblivious of the arduous tasks of state before your incoming administration.
“We are rejoicing with Your Excellency and we pray it will be Your Excellency and we pray it will be Your Excellency that God will use to move this nation to where it should be among the comity of nations and take the nation to greater heights in all spheres.

“Nigerians will not be bothered about ethnicity, religiosity, or any other sentimental colouration, of any kind, if they see genuine hope of transformation. Nigerians are hungry and crying, as never before for hope, and we pray, they may see hope in your slogan: Renewed hope.
“While committing you to the hands of the Almighty God, we also say you should take heed in your appointments so that you can put in place those who will key into your set out agenda and work for Nigerians.”
