The
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has
eulogized former Lagos State governor and a national leader of the
ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on the
occasion of his 65th birthday.

 

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and  Public Affairs, Mr Turaki Hassan, the Speaker,
described Mr Tinubu as a leader, man of vision, and dogged fighter
for democracy who has and continued to make invaluable contributions to
democratic governance of Nigeria. 
The
Speaker likened the former Lagos state governor with the proverbial elephant that cannot
be described and argued that any attempt to describe him will amount to
grave injustice.
“He
is undoubtedly one of the leading lights of our modern democracy. I can
only say this based on the part I have touched. I see him as someone
who is demonstrating the attributes of a true leader,” he said.
“He
is not a regional leader. Some who thought he had everything cut out
for him in the South-West and he may not be able to play on a more
national platform, got it wrong as they saw how together with some other
committed leaders in this country, how they midwifed a political
organization that so many pundits believed it was impossible for them to
midwife, they midwifed it and in the history of this country, for the
first time, an opposition party which was built on some blocks including
the great Asiwaju himself succeeded in wrestling power from the hands
of the ruling party.”
Like
wine which they say tastes better with age, the Speaker, prayed for Mr Tinubu to age gracefully and in good health, so that “some of us
who have come to see him as a mentor will continue to learn more and
drink from the fountain of his wisdom.”
“As
you celebrate another dawn in your life, I congratulate you and pray
the Almighty God to continue to keep you in good health and strengthen
you as you continue in your contribution to the giant strides our nation
is making,” the Speaker said.
