Tinubu stood firmly for Nigerians even at risk of losing his life – Sanwo-Olu


Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has said that Sen. Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stood firmly for Nigerians, even at the risk of losing his life during the dark days of the military junta.


Sanwo-Olu, in a congratulatory message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, on Monday, said that Tinubu’s democratic credentials were scholarly materials for study in political economy.


Tinubu, a presidential aspirant in the APC and first Governor of Lagos State in the present Fourth Republic, clocks 70 today.


Sanwo-Olu said Tinubu is very consistent in his thoughts and actions about the development of Lagos and Nigeria.


”He stood firmly on the side of the Nigerian people, even at the risk of losing his life and personal belongings during the dark days of the military junta,” Sanwo-Olu.


”He took a position along with other progressives during the annulment of the June 12 struggle that led to the end of the military interregnum and was replaced with normal government, which we all enjoy today.


”His financial wizardry and economic intellect, which he put to good use as the Governor of Lagos State, has taken our dear State to a greater height.


“Today, Lagos is the pride of Nigeria, occupying an enviable position as the fifth largest economy in Africa,” he added.
