The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) has described Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a source of inspiration and guidance.
This is contained in a congratulatory message to Tinubu as he celebrates his 69th birthday.
The Chairman of the Forum and the Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, in a statement issued Sunday said the governors acknowledged and commended Tinubu’s untiring and selfless leadership and commitment to a united prosperous Nigeria.
The statement reads: “We in particular wish to acknowledge and commend your untiring and selfless leadership and commitment to a united prosperous Nigeria. We acknowledge your contributions to the emergence and growth of our party, APC.
“Emerging from opposition to a governing party through hard and very difficult negotiations, which has bestowed upon us the responsibility of managing the affairs of our dear country is a historic achievement that past political leaders of Nigeria were unable to achieve.
“Under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, in partnership with many other leaders of our party, including Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the politics of Nigeria is passing through fundamental changes, which is a necessary condition for the institution of enduring progressive governance.
“As our national leader, you certainly represent one of the inspirations for our successes. We rejoice with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and will always continue to look up to you for inspiring guidance. Congratulations and Happy Birthday to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Jagaban of the Bogu Kingdom.”
