President Muhammadu Buhari has joined the governing party, All Progressives Congress (APC), and its teeming members in congratulating Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on his 69th birthday.
In a congratulatory message by his spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Sunday, Buhari also shared the joyous occasion with the former two-term Governor of Lagos State, ”whose acumen and influence continue to resonate around the country and beyond.”
The president rejoiced with the “patriot and statesman” on the 12th colloquium, an intellectual gathering to commemorate his birthday.
He noted that the colloquium had over the years turned into a veritable opportunity for discussing topical national issues, and harnessing ideas that would move the nation forward.
The president described the theme of the 12th Bola Tinubu Colloquium, “Our Common Bond, Our Common Wealth: Imperative of National Cohesion for Growth and Prosperity’’, as timely.
He believed the choice of further ”highlighting loyalty to the country and the shared vision that will bring harmony and well-being to everyone is most timely, clearly reflecting Sen. Tinubu’s patriotism and benevolence.”
According to the president, the former Lagos State governor has inspired many leaders and continues to nurture talents for the benefit of the country.
He also acknowledged Tinubu’s role in the stability of the APC, and advocating good governance.
Also, Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti has also showered accolades on the APC’s National Leader.
In a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Iyebode, Fayemi, described Tinubu as leader of leaders.
The governor said that the former Lagos governor was a distinguished Nigerian and courageous, reliable, dependable, and passionate leader.
Fayemi, who is the Chairman of, Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), also described Tinubu as a statesman, with an uncommon political sagacity and generosity.
According to him, the two qualities have made the APC leader stand out as one of the leading lights of progressive politics in the country.
“Asiwaju Tinubu’s ability to identify, nurture and engage talents is unequaled. His life has been a testimony of human capital development in an unrelenting struggle for a better life for people.
“He is not only an accomplished politician; he is a statesman par excellence, a dogged fighter and strong voice in the fight against military dictatorship and enthronement of democratic rule in the country.
“We can only wish him many more useful and productive years in service to humanity.
