The National Leader, All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Bola Tinubu felicitated with the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman and businessman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, as he clocks 85.
Tinubu, in a congratulatory message issued by his Media Aide, Tunde Rahman, on Tuesday, September 15, in Lagos, described Turkur as an astute political leader who has served the country creditably in many capacities. He described Tukur as an elder statement whom he acknowledges, admires and respects for his sterling qualities.
“His records at Ports Authority where he was once Chief Executive Officer and as governor of defunct Gongola State are particularly exceptional. Though we belong to different political parties, his commitment to democracy, good governance in Nigeria and his contributions to party politics over the years are remarkable,” he said.
The APC leader prayed to Almighty Allah to grant Tukur more years and good health.
“As he turns 85 today, I beseech Almighty Allah to continue to imbue him with good health and robust energy. May He grant him more years to continue in the service of our country and humanity,” he added.
