In a congratulatory message to the former Lagos state governor on the conferment of The Sun Man of the Year award, the APC National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, said Tinubu’s contribution to the current democracy in the country cannot be over looked.
It is no surprise, Buni said, “that, in addition to your status of Asiwaju, you also hold the revered title of Jagaban Borgu. As APC National Leader, you have continued to guide, inspire and lead our noble causes of liberating our people from oppression and improving the quality of life of Nigerians.
“You are a sterling example of statesmanship and steadfastness. Notably, your efforts, as a major arrowhead, alongside other like-minded progressive Nigerians, led to the merger of parties to form the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“This ultimately resulted in the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the installation of the current APC-led government.
“Indeed, you have shown the world, through your doggedness and qualitative leadership, that Nigeria can indeed take its pride of place among comity of progressive nations.”
He wished him “many more happy, healthy and fulfilled years of service to the nation and party.”
