Buhari felicitates with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu at 65

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, congratulated former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his 65th birthday.

President Buhari, in a statement made available by his media aide, Mr Femi Adesina, said he joined all members of the APC, political and business associates of the Asiwaju of Lagos, his friends and family, in celebrating another milestone in the life of the great leader, whose foray into politics ushered in a better understanding of building consensus to achieve historical feats, like unseating an incumbent government.

“As he turns 65 years, the President believes the Asiwaju raised the bar for many political leaders across the country as a two-term governor of Lagos State, and also bequeathed a style of leadership that completely altered the landscape of the commercial capital.

“Recalling his pleasant and intellectually enriching encounters with the Jagaban of Borgu Kingdom over the years, the President re-affirms that the nation has benefited a lot from the personal sacrifices, political experience and intellectual foresight of the APC chieftain, and still stands to gain more.

“President Buhari prays that the almighty God will grant the Asiwaju good health, longer life and more wisdom to serve his country and humanity,” the statement said.
