PDP leader pours encomiums on Tinubu

16 April 2015, 12:10

Senator-elect and a leader of the People's Democratic Party in Ogun State, Buruji Kashamu has openly congratulated the national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Punch reports.

Kashamu, who is the chairman of the Organisation and Mobilisation Committee of the PDP in the South-West, paid a rare tribute to the former Lagos State governor in an open letter, describing Tinubu as a true hero to be emulated by every Nigerian.

In the open letter addressed to Tinubu, Kashamu described Tinubu as the architect of modern Nigeria, who, he said, made history by leading an opposition party for 16 years and then grabbing power at the centre.

He noted that without Tinubu, the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, would not have won the March 28 election.

Buruji, who sued former President Olusegun Obasanjo last December over a controversial book authored by the ex-President, also congratulated Obasanjo and Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun.
