He said: “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is a leader who serves with diligence, courage and compassion in such a manner that he clearly articulates and canvasses for issues that directly affect the people.
“He has remained consistent in advocating for matters that unite Nigerians and also promote the economic development of the country.”
The chairman acknowledged the contributions of the celebrant as the National Leader of the APC and one of its founding fathers, saying he continued to provide exemplary leadership for the ruling party.
He noted that the politician ensured he maintained harmony among members of the party.
Lalong urged the APC leader not to relent in upholding the path of cooperation and collaboration among different segments of the Nigerian society.
