The President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been included in Time Magazine’s list of 100 most influential people for 2023.

In a statement, Times Magazine described the former Lagos State governor as a “longtime political power broker who seems “aware of his inheritance in form of a litany of crises in a fractured nation, including deep-rooted corruption, religious insurgencies, and shortages of cash, fuel, and power in a crumbling economy.”

Tinubu will take over from President Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s fifth executive president since the country returned to democratic rule in 1999 on May 29.
