A former aviation minister and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Femi Fani Kayode on Sunday, hailed the Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu, Femi Gbajabiamila and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, on their birthday.
Gbajabiamila who was born on the 25th of June, 1962 is celebrating his 61st birthday on Sunday, June 25, 2023.
Before he was appointed the Chief of Staff, Mr Gbajabiamila was the lawmaker representing noting Surulere federal constituency at the House of Representatives for 20 years, and a minority leader, majority leader, and speaker of the Green chamber for two consecutive terms.
Similarly, Governor Sanwo-Olu, who was born on the 25th of June, 1965, and celebrating his 58th birthday on Sunday, has served as the Managing Director/CEO of Lagos State Development Property Corporation and 3-time Commissioner in Lagos State, having served in the Ministries of Economic Planning & Budget, Commerce & Industry and the Ministry of Establishments, Training & Pensions, before he emerged as the Lagos State Governor in 2019 and his re-election in 2023 respectively.
Celebrating the two public officers through his Twitter handle on Sunday, FFK described them as absolute gentlemen who hail from noble stock and a well-recognised, honourable and respected lineage.
“There are two rising stars in the political firmament and today is their birthday.
“Their names are Femi Gbajabiamila, the Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu and Jide Sanwolu, the Governor of Lagos state. For both of them, the sky is the limit and over the next 10 years, they will play a key and even greater role in the affairs of our country.
“Quite apart from that I can testify to the fact they are both absolute gentlemen who hail from noble stock and a well-recognised, honourable and respected lineage and who belong to a small class of politicians and leaders that can best be described as being well-bred, humble, humane, civilised, reliable, courageous and trustworthy,” FFK wrote.
However, he wished both of them long life, and good health while also praying to God, to guide them in their endeavours.
“I wish them both long life, good health, peace, joy, prosperity and a very happy birthday.
“May God guide them and lead them in all their endeavours and may He cause all that they set their hands to do to meet with success,” he added.
