Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has congratulated the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on his 58th birthday.

Mr Sanwo-Olu, who is also celebrating his 55th birthday on Thursday, wrote in a Twitter thread that Mr Gbajabiamila always sees people first as humans before anything else.

“You have always been a dogged, determined and hardworking parliamentarian, who sees everyone as a human first and a Nigerian second, irrespective of tribe, religion, political affiliation and belief,” the governor wrote.

“It is my prayer that the good Lord continues to keep you in good health and grants you the wisdom to do the will of the people by putting their interests above yours.

“Happy birthday my dear Brother.  God bless you.”

Sanwo-Olu had earlier tweeted about his own birthday, saying he is in a reflective mood.

“I am in a reflective mood today as I mark my birthday during these times even as governance takes priority.

“We have been through a lot as a people these past months and I am thankful for life, family, Lagos and the hope of a better future for us all,” he said.

The governor had on Wednesday requested friends and well-wishers not to put congratulatory messages for him in newspapers.
