Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun has felicitated with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bola Tinubu, on his 65th birthday, describing him as a rare breed of a pathfinder.
In a congratulatory message to Tinubu, the governor said: “Today, we are celebrating a giant pathfinder; one whose contributions to Nigeria’s political and economic growth have provided development scholars and serious models for academic studies.
“This is one Nigerian politician whose politics is known to have impacted heavily on humanity.
“From Lagos where God used him for the emergence of a new state to Nigeria as a whole and indeed, the continent of Africa where his influence continues to be felt, Tinubu manifests in our lives in all ramifications.’’
Aregbesola said Tinubu had made history for creating opportunities for humanity where many people did not see any.
Lagos State, he noted, emerged as a truly habitable state after Tinubu’s mega-development vision.
According to him, the success story of Lagos has rubbed off on the South-West, Nigeria and indeed, the whole of Africa.
Pointing out some of the virtues of Tinubu, Aregbesola said his capacity for talent hunt and mobilsation for leaderships at all levels was unparalleled.
“The unique ability of the APC national leader to spot the best hands for crucial assignments has elevated him to the pedestal of a rare leader of men.”
Aregbesola prayed for longer life for Tinubu just as he expressed the wish that his visions for a greater Nigeria and the Black race would continue to blossom.
