The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has stated that the story of Nigeria’s democracy cannot be told without the former governor of the state, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Sanwo-Olu said this on Sunday, March 28, via a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, while felicitating with Tinubu on his 69th birthday.
According to the Governor, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) charted the developmental trajectory of modern Lagos, raising the bar of governance and public service in the State and indeed, Nigeria.
Sanwo-Olu said, “The story of Nigeria’s democracy cannot be told without the name of the Jagaban Borgu written in gold. Thousands are today direct beneficiaries of his political benevolence. As a pathfinder, Asiwaju charted the developmental trajectory of modern Lagos, raising the bar of governance and public service in the State and indeed, Nigeria. A cheerful giver who cares about the welfare of the people, Asiwaju personifies tolerance and humanity.”
The Governor added, “On behalf of my adorable wife, Ibijoke, the good people of Lagos State, and entire members of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), I felicitate with our leader and mentor on his 69th birthday. As you march on to a higher pedestal in life, may The Almighty go with you every step of the way, and may you accomplish more in the service of our dear country and humanity.”
