Eminent businessman and former Governor of Abia State , Dr. Orji Kalu, has congratulated the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on his 64th birthday, adding that the front-line politician is a force to reckon with beyond the shores of Nigeria.
According to the businessman-cum-politician, over the years, Tinubu has remained on the side of the masses in all ramifications, adding that the large cult-like followership of the APC chieftain is clear testament of his selflessness and large heart.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Prince Kunle Oyewumi, Kalu said, “I join millions of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s well-wishers, supporters, followers, political associates and family in celebrating an icon whose contributions to the social, economic and political development of Nigeria is commendable.
“Your doggedness, forthrightness and passion for a just society have earned you goodwill across the country regardless of political affiliations.
“During the military era you sustained your stand as a welfarist despite the humiliation from the powers that be.
“You have continued to sacrifice endlessly for the sake of democracy in Nigeria.
” As you add another year, my brother and friend, I pray that God Almighty will continue to give you the strength and wisdom in the service of God and humanity”.
Kalu further said, “Asiwaju’s exemplary leadership qualities as a consummate politician and a philanthropist are worth emulating, adding that Nigeria needs bold and patriotic leaders for the country to prosper”.
While extending his greetings to the APC family, he wished the celebrator more fruitful years ahead in excellent health.
