The frontline aspirant of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu, has eulogized Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, in celebration of his 68th birthday today.In a personally signed message, Pastor Ize Iyamu dubbed Bola Tinubu a ‘progressive reformer’ with a “vast political structure carefully built on an ideology that, at the core, holds that the government exists to create conditions that allow the many to lead meaningful lives and fulfill potential.”He highlighted his years of working with the former governor of Lagos and extolled his forbearance, organizational prowess and rare ability to handle setbacks without loss of motivation or a feeling of bitterness.According to Pastor Ize-Iyamu, “Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos, is 68 years old today. The leader of men and political icon of modern Nigeria politics has a lot to be grateful for, and proud of, in his over six decades of existence – a no mean feat considering the average life span and expectancy,” the message began.“There is nothing to be written about Asiwaju that has not already been said by spectators and admirers across the globe. His heroics and personal sacrifice when Nigeria dueled against powerful forces that tried to take away our democracy and free choice; his exemplary work as the builder of modern Lagos and the transformation of the state into the shining city atop a hill; his vast political structure carefully built on an ideology that, at the core, holds that the government exists to create the conditions that allow the many to lead meaningful lives and fulfill potential are all facts attested to by a global audience.”“As his name implies, Asiwaju has always led the way, beat the rough path, and paved an easy route for others to emerge. Working with him in the days of Action Congress [AC], and Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN], one of the parties that mutated into the All Progressives Congress, I watched with awe and admiration how he efficiently organized, handled defeat and setbacks without losing motivation, and dealt with tricky situations without giving vents to feelings of anger and bitterness. All of these made me a better leader and politician.”“Asiwaju, you have sowed your seed in the morning and applied your talent to all that is good and fair, may your harvest never end and may the Lord continue to bless the work of your hands and grant your wishes. Happy Birthday!”
