Ambode extols Tinubu’s virtues at 67th birthday colloquium

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has praised national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, for his role in ensuring the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Mr Ambode, who spoke on Thursday at the 11th Bola Tinubu Colloquium held at International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja, said Nigeria was already on threshold of greatness with the duo in the next level government.

Ambode said: “We are all expectant and we can feel the next level unfolding. Our country is on the threshold of greatness because for the first time since our independence, we would have successive administrations of a progressive and visionary government; a government of integrity, a government whose sole interest is the well-being of Nigeria and Nigerians.

“We are lucky to be here in this exciting time; in a time when our country will be led by selfless individuals who have the progress and prosperity of our people as their major objective and we are here today because Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been a very key part of this story.

“We are here not only to celebrate him (Tinubu) but to celebrate the incoming dawn in Nigeria; we are here to celebrate the next level in Nigeria where Nigerians will be served and given what is due to them.”

The governor, who attended the colloquium with his wife, Bolanle, particularly hailed Tinubu for his political dexterity, doggedness, undoubted courage and political acumen.

The colloquium was attended by Buhari represented by his deputy Osinbajo, governors, ministers, members of the National Assembly, royal fathers, political leaders, captains of industry and members of diplomatic corps, among others.
