All Progressives Congress in the state of Osun has congratulated its national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the chain of remarkable achievements he has had since he became involved in Nigeria’s politics.
According to the party, “whether you like or hate Tinubu, or you are his ardent admirer or critic, nobody can remove from the fact that in the last 17 years ( and counting), the national leader of the APC has earned a place in history as one of the most spectacular politicians who effected monumental democratic change in the country’s political evolution.”
This statement of endorsement was contained in a release from the party’s directorate of publicity signed by its director, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi and made available to the media in Osogbo yesterday.
The statement continued; “In the last two decades, your (Tinubu’s) deft political strategies have not only warded off political crimes against the Yoruba nation by those who sought and still seek to humiliate and subjugate us, you have also steered the course of events in Nigeria to make what was thought impossible happen.
“You piloted the APC into an epic electoral battle, which, for the first time in Nigeria’s political history, led to the defeat of a government in power at the federal establishment.
“That by itself is a signature achievement – the first of its kind in Nigeria – and a milestone in our democratic as well as electoral evolution. It is an uncommon feat”, the party claimed.
‘At 65, Asiwaju is comparatively still young and our prayer is that Allah should grant the Leader good health to continue in his good work, most of which is impacting positively on people’s lives.
“May Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s days, months and years bring further progress, stronger and greater democracy to Nigeria in general and Yoruba land in particular.
‘The APC and the people of Osun stand firmly behind the Leader and support his lieutenant and governor of the state, Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola who like the Jagaban of Borgu, has distinguished himself as the greatest achiever, Osun has ever had since the state was created over 25 years ago”, the statement said.
‘May Asiwaju’s star shine ever more brightly. Happy Birthday!” the APC saluted
