President Tinubu celebrates life, legacy of late patriarch Tinubu family



President Bola Tinubu has celebrated the life and legacy of the late patriarch of the Tinubu family, Alhaji Kafaru Tinubu, on the 20th anniversary of his passing.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said Tinubu extolled the sterling qualities of the late patriarch.

According to the president, the late patriarch was a distinguished public servant, lawyer, administrator and philanthropist.

“Baba was the finest of men. He was an honourable man; he was noble. He believed in defending the weak against the strong and standing for what is just even at the cost of personal liberty.

“He was my fortress in the dark days of oppression. He was my rock. Baba was selfless. He never stopped giving himself; his fortune, and everything for the betterment of others.”

The president recalls the invaluable advice, support and guidance the late patriarch provided him when he served as the governor of Lagos State.

“Baba was passionate about good governance. When I was the governor of Lagos, he was always on hand to offer brilliant advice and guidance.

“He left a legacy that is larger than life. We will continue to celebrate Baba as well as the values and principles he exemplified,” said the president.
