“His achievements and the development foundations he laid in Lagos as the first elected governor of the state in the Fourth Republic have secured his place in the history of the state.

“That is the reason he has continued to loom large on the political stage 14 years after he last held a political office.

“The Jagaban of Borgu is also a founding father of our great party, the APC, and has been consistent alongside our other leaders in guiding the ruling party along a progressive path for the growth of our democracy and the development of our nation.

“Asiwaju Tinubu has been unwavering in his commitment to the unity of Nigeria and his belief in its destiny as a great nation with a happy and prosperous people, despite the current challenges of nation-building.”

“Without question, you have written your name in gold. You have devoted your life to public service with extraordinary courage, resilience and tenacity of purpose. We appreciate your patriotic commitment to nation-building.

“This is a great day once again in the life of a great man and an exemplary leader, the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, whose 69th birthday should be celebrated by all.

“The Jagaban of Borgu kingdom means many positive things to different people. To some, he is an emancipator; to others, he is a great philanthropist. Yet, to some people, Asiwaju is a rallying point, a unifying pillar.

“His democratic credentials are unrivalled. His philanthropic activities transcend borders. To the Asiwaju, life is nothing without touching the lives of people.

“When he served as the governor of Lagos State from 1999 to 2007, he made his indelible mark and laid the foundation for the development of the state to what it is now.

“Despite his achievements in life, the great Asiwaju does not blow his trumpet and remains unassuming, which is his hallmark.

“For those of us that come from his “school”, we know that he stands for justice and fairness for all. His presence in our political space is more than a blessing to us all.

“I make bold to say that our current crop of politicians has a lot to learn and gain from the Asiwaju.

“I pray that the Almighty Allah will continue to preserve the life of this great man, give him the wisdom and good health to continue with the work of building our nation through various means available to him,” the Speaker said.

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in a Twitter post said “Hearty congratulations to our great leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the joyous occasion of his 69th birthday.”

Sanwo-Olu continued, “Asiwaju is a statesman and builder whose contribution to a progressive and democratic Nigeria can not be quantified.”

“As a pathfinder, Asiwaju charted the developmental trajectory of modern Lagos, raising the bar of governance and public service in Nigeria. 
“As he marches forward on to a higher pedestal, may the Almighty go with him every step of the way.”
Sanwo-Olu wishes Tinubu many happy returns he said “on behalf of my wife, the government and the good people of Lagos, I wish @AsiwajuTinubu many happy returns in good health.
