Agbese said the tasks before Tinubu is enormous hence the former Lagos State Governor must hit the ground running quickly.
He added that the incoming president must justify the trust bestowed on him by Nigerians and unify the nation at a critical time where it is leaning towards religious lines.
The media entrepreneur said the president-elect must work for all Nigerians irrespective of any inclination and must be a father to all.
While expressing confidence in the capacity, track record, and competence of Tinubu to bring ‘renewed hope’, peace, progress, and prosperity to Nigeria, Agbese urged him to be magnanimous in victory.
He reckoned that the struggle for a greater nation rests squarely on the new crop of leaders elected across Nigeria.

He said Nigerians have toiled enough and now is the time to forge a new cause of development and progress.
The member-elect, however, pledged that the 10th National Assembly will support the President-elect to deliver.
