The Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday described national leader of APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s leadership, as one which Nigeria as a country currently yearns.
Members of the House said this at a plenary session, taking time to eulogise the former Lagos state governor. Tinubu recently celebrated his 69th birthday, an occasion that raised eyebrows over his actual age.
Speaking after lawmaker Victor Akande (Ojo 1) urged his colleagues to join him to wish Mr Tinubu a happy birthday, the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, said it had always been customary for the House to celebrate the Jagaban of Borgu on his birthday, but that this year’s celebration happened at a time the House was on recess.
The Speaker, who said Tinubu had earlier been honoured by attendees at a colloquium organised in his honour, added that the comments by lawmakers during Monday’s plenary showed how the APC National Leader had impacted the lives of individuals.
He agreed with members of the House that Mr Tinubu remains one man that can effectively steer the Nigerian ship to make the country attain greater success in the coming years.
“We all congratulate him and wish him all the good things of life,” Mr Obasa said. “We believe strongly in him and we have the conviction that he is a worthy man that can steer the ship of this nation. It is not about religion or ethnicity, but it is about wisdom, knowledge, experience and the capacity to lead.”
Tinubu may not have officially declared his interest to run for the presidency come 2023 but, his endorsements are growing by the day. First from Ondo Monarchs, and now Lagos House. De ja vu!
