President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Bola Tinubu, president-elect, on his 71st birthday.
In a message signed by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, Buhari said Tinubu’s years of experience and achievements in the private and public sectors prepared him for the “historic” win on February 25.
“President Buhari believes Asiwaju’s warmth, friendliness, and generosity have set the pace for a network of friends, home and abroad, that will shape his presidency with requisite expertise to guide the economy, and consolidate on the investments of past leaders, particularly in people-first development and infrastructure,” the message reads.
“As the President-Elect prepares to take over the mantle of leadership at 71, the President affirms that his political pedigree from the ’90s, active role in party politics, being elected Senator and later Governor of Lagos State, and diligent involvement in structure of leadership at the Executive and Legislative levels for many years, will serve as an asset for good and effective governance.”
Buhari also prayed for the well-being of Tinubu.
