Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Monday described former Lagos state Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as a pillar in Yorubaland and Nigeria as a whole.
Fayose said this in a congratulatory message to mark Tiunbu’s 64th birthday.
Tinubu was born on March 29, 1952.
A statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, said the APC national leader had over the years proven to be a great political figure in the country.
The statement read in part, “I heartily felicitate with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he clocks 64 on March 29.
“Whether one likes it or not, Asiwaju Tinubu has become a political pillar and leader, not only in Yorubaland but in Nigeria.
“He is a great politician who takes well-calculated political steps.”
The governor, while congratulating Tinubu on his 64th birthday, wished him good health and long life.
He was quoted as saying,”Asiwaju Tinubu is a good case study when one talks about political resilience and doggedness and no wonder he now ranks among the leaders of this great country.
“I pray that God gives him the grace to witness many more years in sound health in the land of the living.”
