Lagos State governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has felicitated with the senator representing Lagos Central senatorial district at the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, as she clocked 61.
In a statement, the Lagos number one citizen described the former First Lady of Lagos State as a great asset to Lagos State and Nigeria, who has contributed immeasurably towards nation-building; adding that the three-term senator and philanthropist has contributed immensely to humanity and governance with her laudable programmes as First Lady and currently as a member of the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
Sanwo-Olu added that the federal lawmaker has played critical roles in the growth and development of Lagos State and Nigeria, thereby setting examples for other women in leadership and governance.
He said, “On behalf of my dear wife, Ibijoke and the good people of Lagos State, I heartily congratulate a political icon, the distinguished Senator Oluremi Tinubu, on the occasion of her 61st birthday celebration.
“Over the years, Senator Tinubu has emblazoned her name on the national and international stage as a lover of truth, an advocate of social justice, philanthropist and a loud voice of the voiceless.
“Senator Tinubu’s penchant for diligence and distinction is evident in her contributions to the development of Nigeria’s socio-economic and political landscape as former First Lady of Lagos State, and as a distinguished senator of the Federal Republic.
“On this occasion of her 61st birthday, I pray that God will continue to preserve and grant her good health to enable our distinguished Senator Tinubu to render more service to humanity, Nigeria and our beloved state, Lagos.”
