The Senator representing Kwara Central and Chairman, of the Senate Committee on Health, Dr Ibrahim Yahaya Oloriegbe has joined well-wishers across the country and beyond to felicitate the President-Elect, Federal Republic of Nigeria, H.E, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the occasion of his 71st birthday.
The lawmaker in a congratulatory message made available to the press described the National Leader of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress and former Lagos State Governor as a man of clear vision with a knack for excellence and who will never settle for less in everyone of his endeavours.
Oloriegbe also explained further that whomsoever aims to be like Tinubu must possess some essential virtues which stand the third republic lawmaker out of his contemporaries, and they are: character, competence, capacity, capability, comportment, confidence, compassion and conscience.
According to the statement: “This year’s birthday is very significant in the life and journey of our leader, H.E Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as it will usher him very soon into the seat of power as the President of Africa’s most populous nation.
“That the president-elect is a man of clear vision with a knack for excellence and will never settle for less in his endeavours is a statement of fact that can never be contested. He has demonstrated that as a private citizen and later as a public servant of many decades from legislative to executive and party politics as a leader and manager of men.
“His transformational leadership in Lagos State has become a model for every pragmatic leader to study and replicate. Jagaban is a man who derives joy in building towers from the scratch and turns nothing into something with significance.
Thus, whoever aims to be like Asiwaju must have admirable character; administrative competence, capacity and capability; comportment in dealing with people of diverse backgrounds; confidence in service delivery; compassion for people; and moral conscience to guide one’s conduct. These are virtues that stand Asiwaju out amongst his contemporaries.
“I pray to God almighty to endow him with more wisdom and strength to serve the country diligently as he takes over the mantle of leadership in a very few months.
