Below are first photos from the birthday colloquim of APC chieftain Asiwaju Bola Tinubu which is ongoing at the International Conference Center (ICC), Abuja.
The venue is filled with notable politicians who turned up to celebrate Tinubu on his 67th birthday which is today.
Absent at the birthday colloquim is President Muhammadu Buhari who already sent a congratulatory message through one of his aides yesterday.
Part of the message reads:
“Asiwaju’s uncompromising posture in the face of injustice and refusal to follow the path of least resistance for personal gains stand him out today as a rare breed and one of the cornerstones of Nigeria’s democracy, especially with his track record of persistence, consistency and effective leadership.
“As the father of modern Lagos state, the President commends the visionary and inclusive leadership style that the Asiwaju provided for the commercial nerve centre of Nigeria for eight years, laying the foundation for a modern and technologically-driven city, and ensuring that every successive leader in the state sticks with the masterplan of a greater Lagos,” he said.
