Bola Tinubu allegedly “risked his life” for Nigerian democracy, according to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
In a message sent to Tinubu on Wednesday in honor of his 71st birthday, he made this comment.
His chief press secretary, Gboyega Akosile, signed the statement.
As a “visionary, consistent, loyal, and enigmatic master strategist,” Sanwo-Olu praised the former governor of Lagos.
Part of the declaration was as follows:.
In the darkest days of the military junta, he steadfastly stood by the Nigerian people, even at the risk of losing his life and personal property.
“He labored assiduously alongside other progressives and pro-democracy activists during the annulment of the June 12 struggle to end the military interregnum and enthrone democracy, which we all enjoy today. “.
This year, Tinubu chose not to hold the yearly colloquium in honor of his birthday.
He’s decided to hold a thanksgiving service and special prayers instead.
