President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former Governor of Lagos State, on his 70th birthday.
Tinubu would clock 70 years tomorrow March 29, 2022.
Buhari affirmed Tinubu’s contributions to the political, economic, and social development of the country, setting a standard in leadership, governance, and philanthropy.
A statement by Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, said: “As the former Governor of Lagos State turns 70, 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.
“President Buhari joins family members, friends, business and political associates in celebrating the septuagenarian, who has diligently and progressively risen on the nation’s political ladder since 1992, fighting for a democratic rule against many odds, angling for people-focused development and supporting visionary and purposeful leadership.
“The President prays that the Almighty God will increase Asiwaju Tinubu, the Jagaban of Borgu Kingdom, in strength, good health and wisdom to keep serving the nation, and humanity.”
