President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as he clocks 64 years today.
In a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President commended Tinubu on his “forthrightness, diligence and doggedness”, stating that his qualities had endeared him to the electorate and given him all-round success as a private sector worker, a businessman and two-term governor of Lagos State.
Describing Tinubu as one of the pillars of the APC, President Buhari emphasized the fact that the national leader successfully created a formidable opposition that worked vigorously within a short period to oust a party that had been in power for 16 years.
He then gave the assurance that his patriotism and commitment to democracy and good governance, as well as his generous spirit would always be remembered and appreciated by generations of Nigerians.
Also felicitating with Tinubu, Governor Amosun of Ogun State said in a statement – “On this occasion of your birthday, I join you and your immediate and political families in celebrating the abundant grace of God on your life. Your life has been an eventful one dotted by numerous achievements and accomplishments. Nigeria has benefitted immensely from your fountain of knowledge, wealth of experience, political sagacity and leadership acumen. The remarkable impact you have made in all spheres of human endeavour remains a reference point. This is so that you can continue to make significant contributions to the overall development of our party, in particular and our nation, Nigeria in general.”
