The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has hailed the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, on the occasion of his 71st birthday anniversary.
Tinubu, who won the 2023 presidential election will be celebrating his 71st birthday anniversary on Wednesday.
In a statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari, said Nigeria would experience effective governance under the administration of Tinubu.
He said Tinubu had the political background and expertise to accomplish this before May 29, when he would assume the nation’s presidency.
He said, “As the President-elect prepares to take over mantle of leadership at 71, the President affirms that his political pedigree from the 90’s, active role in party politics, being elected Senator and later Governor of Lagos State, and diligent involvement in structure of leadership at the Executive and Legislative levels for many years, will serve as asset for good and effective governance.
“President Buhari believes Asiwaju’s warmth, friendliness and generosity has set the pace for a network of friends, home and abroad, that will shape his presidency with requisite expertise to guide the economy, and consolidate on the investments of past leaders, particularly in people-first development and infrastructure”.
