“I heartily felicitate with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he clocks 64 on March 29. Whether one likes it or not, Asiwaju Tinubu has become a political pillar and leader not only in Yorubaland but in Nigeria.
“He is a great politician who takes well-calculated political steps. I and the good people of Ekiti State join millions of Nigerians and Asiwaju Tinubu’s friends and supporters across the world to rejoice with him on this auspicious occasion.
