The Kogi State Coordinator of the Independent Campaign Council (ICC), for the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Dr Sanusi Abubakar Gamji, on Friday assured that Nigeria would be out of the woods under the administration of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
Gamji gave the assurance in a statement in Lokoja while congratulating Tinubu on his 71st birthday.
He said Tinubu had garnered enough experience to rescue the country from its current socio-economic challenges.
The ICC Coordinator said, “He has the wherewithal to take our country out of the woods because he has done that in the past as governor of Lagos state.
“He will assemble the best brains in different sectors and fields to work with, and our country will regain its old lost glory and take its place in the comity of nations.”
On his 71st birthday, Gamji noted that this year’s birthday is remarkable coming shortly after Asiwaju Tinubu had won a popular mandate from millions of his countrymen in Nigeria’s presidential election which promises to mark the peak of service to his fatherland.
He described Asiwaju Tinubu as a champion of democracy, dogged fighter for constitutionalism and the rule of law, apostle of true federalism and defender of the defenseless who is unrelenting in ensuring that the rights of the populace are not violated.
The ICC Coordinator hailed the celebrant for being one of the progenitors of the restoration of democracy in Nigeria which berthed the Fourth Republic after long years of battle against the military for the revalidation of the result of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
According to him, the story of how Asiwaju Tinubu (as the last man standing among the progressive governors) worked hard to ensure that other states of the federation were brought into the progressive fold would make a classic and would be told the generations yet unborn.
Gamji further described Asiwaju Tinubu as a visionary leader who saw ahead of his time and a strategic leader who has an unrivaled ability in identifying great talents.
He prayed God to grant Asiwaju Tinubu long life, sound health and more wisdom to continue his selfless service to mankind for many years to come.
