Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State has congratulated President Bola Tinubu on his 72nd birthday.

Governor Oyebanji, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Olayinka Oyebode described President Tinubu as a special and remarkable gift to Nigeria and a man of history whose impact, over the years, has helped shape democracy in the country.

The Governor said President Tinubu’s 72nd birthday offers an opportunity to celebrate a life that is dedicated to the service of fatherland and humanity in general. This, he said, is in addition to thanking God for giving Nigeria a man of courage as its leader at a critical time like this.

He described President Tinubu as an uncommon statesman who sacrificed his all by opting to be an opposition leader at the height of military dictatorship in the country and fighting with other patriotic leaders to ensure the restoration of democracy to Nigeria.

According to him, President Tinubu is a consistent politician who understands the game of politics and intricacies of leadership which he sees as an opportunity to touch the lives of the masses. This, according to the Governor, has been demonstrated times without number through the President’s actions, policies and interventions.

Governor Oyebanji described the nation’s leader as “the most prepared President ever” by his evolution as a freedom fighter, a pro-democracy activist, a legislator, a governor and an opposition leader who transited to the Presidency to crown a stellar political career.

Hailing he President’s decision not to mark his birthday with any form of celebration this year in view of the mood of the nation, Governor Oyebanji said the President’s action is a reflection of his selflessness and sensitivity as a true leader of the people.

He assured President Tinubu that the government and people of Ekiti State would continue to support his administration even as they wish him a happy birthday and more years of bliss and impact.

“On behalf of the Government and good people of Ekiti State, the Land of Honour, I wish our dear President and leader a happy birthday and pray that the years ahead be lived in good health and crowned with greater impact.”, the Governor added.
