“President Tinubu has sacrificed the greater part of his life in the service of our dear State and Nigeria. He contributed to the enthronement of democracy and good governance, serving first as a Senator in the aborted third republic and later as a pro-democracy activist, working tirelessly as a member of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) to struggle for the de-annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.

Governor Soludo in his congratulatory message described President Tinubu as a frontline statesman in Nigerian politics, renowned for his resolute commitment to democracy, fearless leadership, and unyielding patriotism.

With his astute leadership, Nigeria has the potential to ascend to greater heights, provided we rally together in support of his visionary agenda.

Therefore, on this auspicious occasion, Governor Soludo on behalf of the Government and good people of Anambra State joins millions of Nigerians from all walks of life in extending best wishes to President Tinubu on the occasion of his 72nd birthday

The Governor prayed for many more years of robust health, uncommon wisdom, unparalleled success, and enduring happiness while wishing also that his leadership continues to guide our nation towards a future filled with promises and opportunities.
