Former Governor of Lagos State Tells Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, for turning 65 -You still have a lot to contribute – Tinubu
Former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has congratulated the immediate past governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, for turning 65, saying the former governor still has a lot to contribute to the nation.
Tinubu said Oshiomhole has attained an “impossible-to-ignore status of eminence” in the country.
In a letter sent to Oshiomhole and signed by the APC national leader, he said: “My dear Comrade, it is a great pleasure for my family and I to join your teeming admirers and well-wishers to rejoice and thank God with you on the commemoration of your 65th birthday on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.
“From the shop floor of the textile industry, you pulled yourself up by the bootstraps and through consistent courage, integrity and fidelity to truth as well as the best interest of Nigerian workers, you rose through the ranks to establish yourself as easily the most outstanding national labour leader of contemporary times. Your successful trajectory from trade unionism to party politics is indeed a unique one, made more notable by your emergence as elected governor of Edo State.
“I most certainly speak the minds of millions of members of our great party when I say that your outstanding performance as two-term governor of Edo State remains a reference point and a source of pride to the All Progressives Congress (APC). It is my prayer that God Almighty will continue to bless you with good health, divine wisdom and long life as you dedicate yourself anew to the cause of service to Nigeria, Africa and humanity.
“As my family and I wish you a very happy and fulfilled 65th birthday, I am confident that the best for you is surely yet to come”.
Happy 65th Birthday Oshiomhole
