As preparation for the 65th birthday celebration of All Progressive Congress, APC, stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu begins, he has been described as a “consummate leader, a thorough-bred democrat and a quintessential humanist” who is passionately committed to the just and egalitarian society.


APC leader in Agboyi-Ketu Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, Yomi Adebisi, made the remark at the weekend in Lagos, while unfolding line of activities planned by his office to celebrate the forthcoming 65th birthday of the former governor.

According to him; “Asiwaju laid a solid foundation for the growth and development of Lagos State, which is today the model and a positive reference point in not just Nigeria but in Africa.

“He was also the architect of the re-engineering of the Lagos economy, a move which today has resulted in the emergence of Lagos as the fifth largest economy in Africa”, Adebisi said

He stated that why many states are grappling to survive due to the harsh economic realities of the moment, Lagos is standing tall not just in meeting its basic responsibilities but also executing infrastructural projects all across the states, a feat that had been laid by the former governor.

Adebisi, however, urged well meaning Nigerians to appreciate God in the life of Asiwaju Tinubu, for bequeathing the state of excellence a knowledgeable and dependable governor in person of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, who had also proven to be an epitome of good governance.
