Lagos ACN Hails Asiwaju Tinubu At 60


The Lagos State chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria has joined millions of Nigerians to felicitate with the National Leader of the party and the former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he clocks sixty.

The party says it feels proud of the numerous achievements of the Asiwaju and his priceless effort to arrest the wheels of civilian dictatorship and one party rule in Nigeria .

In a release in Lagos signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the ACN, Joe Igbokwe, Lagos ACN said that Asiwaju is a study in perseverance, political determination and doggedness in the face of odds.

It said Asiwaju will ever remain an institution that must be emulated by upcoming politicians as the battle for a free democratic space gets grittier.

“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed has charted a disciplined and straight political cause based on a free and fair process where the people’s votes will count. He was in the forefront in the battle to free the country from the clutches of the military and has been very active in defining the principles of true federalism since the advent of civilian rule in 1999.

“His numerous court cases, as the Lagos State governor challenging the Unitarian traits of the central government have gone a long way in strengthening the federal structure of Nigeria and cleared many ambiguities smuggled to give undue advantage to the forces of retrogression who desire a unitary government in a federal state as Nigeria.

“He made countless human and material sacrifice to secure the democratic space that is being thoroughly abused presently by sundry interests that latched unto it for their selfish interests,” the party said.

According to ACN, “Lagosians can never forget Asiwaju’s gritty battle against the PDP government of former President Obasanjo in their desire to shortchange Lagos for their partisan interests and Lagos will forever remain grateful to his solid stand against efforts to subject Lagos to the whims and caprices of the PDP.

“His well rewarded battle to restore the Southwest from the tyrannical conquest of 2003 stands out and will remain indelible in the pages of Nigeria’s political history.”
