The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has described the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as an enigmatic master strategist whose democratic credentials are scholarly materials for study in the political economy.
Sanwo-Olu’s statement was contained in his congratulatory message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile today.
The message was released in commemoration of the 71st birthday of Tinubu, which is set for March 29. Sanwolu explained that Tinubu’s win at the 2023 presidential polls is a reward for his hard work and contributions to the country.
According to him, what matters most to Tinubu at 71 “is the legacy to bequeath to people after him.” Sanwo-Olu added that God has “blessed him with a great opportunity to take the mantle of leadership of Nigeria and chart the right path of progress for the people of Nigeria.”
Sanwo-Olu celebrates Tinubu’s life of service
In the statement, the Lagos state governor noted that “Asiwaju Tinubu has donated the greater part of his adult life for service to humanity, Lagos State and Nigeria. His many contributions to democracy and good governance have helped the political and democratic trajectory of Nigeria since 1999.” Sanwo-Olu noted that the democracy which Nigeria enjoys today was tirelessly fought for by Tinubu and other progressives and pro-democracy activists during the annulment of the June 12 election.
He added that Asiwaju made and redefined the socio-political history of Nigeria by contributing his quota to the survival of democracy and uninterrupted civilian administration in Nigeria for 24 years. Sanwo-Olu who has closely worked with Tinubu for years stressed that Nigeria is blessed to have Tinubu as her next president.
The Lagos governor further prayed that “God will give him wisdom, knowledge, sound health and good things that he will use to steer the ship of the country and navigate Nigeria’s development to the desired place as he becomes Nigeria’s President from May 29, 2023.”
