The National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress APC Babatunde John Kwame Ogala has joined millions of people across the world to celebrate the national leader of the party Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his 68th birthday.

Mr Kwame-Ogala in a statement made available to newsmen showered encomium on Asiwaju Tinubu describing him as a nation builder, diligent and astute polititian whose contributions to the growth and development of Nigeria cannot be quantified.

According to him, the progress of nations is written by the lifetime challenges and successes of its citizens but with the ink drawn from the inspirational leadership and sacrifices made by only a few leaders in which he said Asiwaju Tinubu is one of them.

He noted that out of compassion for the masses, Tinubu has continued to work tirelessly and sacrificially to change the circumstance of the nation, a virtue he said was driven by his personal insatiable desire for shared-prosperity and keen interest in implementing transformative ideas.

Mr. Kwame-Ogala wished Tinubu a very happy birthday and many more long years of good health, happiness and above all God’s mercies adding that his best years are still ahead and cannot wait for them to unravel.

The statement reads “As it has been in years past, we would have all been gathered at your Colloquium today to celebrate you through intense and frank debates on burning national and international issues of the moment.

“However, we have been constrained by the public health challenge of the day to remain in isolation. It is this very challenge that we face that further drives home your essence and the impact of your life’s work and toil as a distinguished democrat.

“You have long stood for square pegs in square holes when it comes to making leadership choices and you have ignored cliché political disadvantages suffered by many of your protegees and instead elevated them with your mentorship.

“You have demonstrated a knack for finding the “rat” which no one sees and have used this forward-thinking ability to lay foundations for buildings whose building blocks were years away from being manufactured.

“You have created competent leaders in the North, West, South and East of this country and you have done so in exemplary manner leading from the front.

“As a result, many will mistake you for the boss yet those of us who know you well can attest to the fact that you are a leader who perfects his followers and then turns around to follow their lead.

“Today, across this country, your protégés do you proud even as we face this momentous challenge.
That is the best birthday gift we can give to you sir. To show you in this moment of uncertainty and adversity, that we can lead well because we have learnt well.

“Once again, Happy birthday sir and I wish you very many happy returns.
