Ilorin (Precise Post) – Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara state has congratulated the national Leader of the All Progressives Congress on his 68th birthday, saying Asiwaju has successfully built bridges across tongues and climates.
He further said that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a political giant “with enviable records of commitment to democracy, rule of law and national development.”
AbdulRazaq said: “Asiwaju Tinubu has proved himself as not just a patriot of continental acclaim, but also a critical part of Nigeria’s democratic history.
But beyond this is the fact that Asiwaju has successfully built bridges across tongues and climates. This makes him a true nationalist.”
He added: “On this auspicious occasion of your birthday, I congratulate you and your entire family. I wish you good health and many more years to continue to contribute to national growth for which you are known.”
Also, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman in the state, Bashir Bolarinwa, has described Asiwaju Tinubu as a legendary leader.
He said Tinubu’s contributions to national development will remain a reference point for students of Nigerian political history for years to come.
In a congratulatory message to celebrate the former Lagos State governor’s 68th birthday, the Kwara APC chairman said Tinubu is a quintessential mobiliser, a strategic thinker, a visionary nationalist, a defender of democracy and the rule of law and a friend of the downtrodden.
He said Asiwaju’s capacity for identifying and grooming leaders set him apart from other class of leaders, who are unwilling to hand over the reins of power to their protégés.
Said he: “Our leader has over the years ensured the sustenance of his legacy by identifying and thrusting leadership upon those that have continued on his set path of re-engineering Lagos and in a larger sense, the political firmament of our nation.
“Asiwaju’s contribution and perspective to national discuss are trail-blazing, path-finding and illuminating.
“My leader, as you celebrate another birthday, I wish you many more healthy years of service to our dear fatherland and urge you to continue to be our standard- bearer as we seek a broader leadership perspective.”
