The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Sunday, sent a congratulatory message to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State on his 70th birthday.
In a signed personal letter to Ganduje released in Lagos by his media office, the former governor of Lagos said, “Your Excellency, I heartily congratulate you on your 70th birthday.”
Tinubu described the Kano State governor as a statesman and a politician who has come a long way.
“As a statesman and highly de-tribalised Nigeria, you see our various people as one,” he stated.
He noted the contributions of the celebrant who has continued to work tirelessly for the unity and indivisibility of the country and to build bridges across the various divides.
"It’s a testament to your national outlook that today you are a respectable in-law in Yorubaland," he said, adding, “As an astute politician with political dexterity, strong administrative acumen and good team spirit, you are successfully governing a highly cosmopolitan and political state like Kano. You are committed to the development of your state of Kano and Nigeria, just as you are devoted to the growth and development of our party, APC. No wonder you are often called upon in matters of building peace and reconciliation in our party."
