The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has joined members, leaders and chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, in rejoicing with the National Leader of the party and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his 70th birthday, March 29, 2022.
This is contained in the press statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina on Monday.
Buhari affirms the contributions of the party stalwart to the political and socio-economic development of the country, setting a standard in leadership, governance and philanthropy.
As the erstwhile governor of Lagos state begins his septuagenarian sojourn, the president notes and salutes his courage, resilience, selflessness and nobility in always placing the welfare and unity of the nation above self, backed with the vision of a greater Nigeria through investments in people, institutions and governments, without minding tribe or creed.
On the auspicious occasion of this platinum jubilee, Buhari enjoins all family members, friends, business and political associates in celebrating a fulfilled septuagenarian, who has diligently and progressively risen on the nation’s political ladder since 1992, fighting for democratic rule against many odds, angling for people-focused development and supporting visionary and purposeful leadership.
The president wishes in prayers, that the Almighty God would increase Asiwaju Tinubu, the Jagaban of Borgu Kingdom, in strength, good health and wisdom to keep serving the nation, and humanity.
