The Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, has congratulated the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on the occasion of his 71st birthday slated for Wednesday the 29th of March.
Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, showered praises on Tinubu, describing him as an “enigmatic master strategist whose democratic credentials are scholarly materials for study in political economy.”
Sanwo-Olu added that Tinubu’s emergence as president-elect is a reward for his hard work and contributions to the country.
He said, “At 71, Asiwaju has attained the age, that what matters most is the legacy to bequeath to people after him and God has blessed him with a great opportunity to take the mantle of leadership of Nigeria, and chart the right path of progress for the people of Nigeria.
“Asiwaju Tinubu has donated the greater part of his adult life for service to humanity, Lagos State and Nigeria. His many contributions to democracy and good governance have helped the political and democratic trajectory of Nigeria since 1999. It is also on record that he stood firmly on the side of the Nigerian people, even at the risk of losing his life and personal belongings during the dark days of the military junta.
“He fought tirelessly with other progressives and pro-democracy activists during the annulment of the June 12 struggle to end the military interregnum and enthroned democracy, which we all enjoy today.”
Sanwo-Olu stated that Nigeria is blessed to have Tinubu as her next president, who has donated the greater part of his life in service.
