President Buhari felicitates with Tinubu at 64

28 March 2016, 14:30

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as he clocks 64 years on March 29.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina.

President Buhari noted that the rising political profile of Asiwaju Tinubu since he was elected a Senator in 1992 was ``a testimony to his forthrightness, diligence and doggedness.’’

He said that these qualities had also 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.

The President described Tinubu as one of the pillars of the APC who 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 commended the visionary leadership style of the Asiwaju of Lagos, who is also the Jagaban of Borgu Kingdom in Niger State.

President Buhari assured Tinubu that his patriotism and commitment to democracy and good governance, and his generous spirit would always be remembered and appreciated by generations of Nigerians.

He prayed that the Almighty God would grant the Asiwaju "long life, good health, wisdom and prosperity as he steadfastly supports efforts to promote the development of Nigeria.’’
