President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed faith in Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the incoming leader, to maintain the pace of his administration.

Buhari said this on Monday while speaking at the Presidential Fleet Review, 2023, at the Naval Dockyard Limited, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The relationship Buhari had with the Nigerian Navy would be maintained by the new administration, according to Buhari, by giving the required support as and when it was called for.

“I have no doubt that the incoming administration of President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will sustain the current tempo of my administration in giving the Navy necessary support to effectively carry out its assigned tasks”, the President said.

Buhari praised the excellent combat displays put on by the Nigerian Navy Special Boat Service and a combination of Nigerian Navy and Air Force assets.
