Many of the audience paid glowing tributes to the former Lagos State governor for his exemplary leadership style.
One of the top politicians and loyalist at the colloquium who took time to pour tribute on the celebrant and National leader for the APC led Federal government is Hon. Alh. Aminu Suleiman is the All Progressive Congress (APC) Kebbi State Chairman.
Alhaji Aminu Suleiman is a long time friend and devoted loyalist of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. In this brief Chat with Oki Samson at the Eko hotel venue of the colloquium, He shared his experience with Asiwaju Tinubu, Assessment of the Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and Alh. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state Administrations and why he is contesting the seat of the Federal House of Representative, Representing Birnin Kebbi, Kalgo and Bunza Federal Constituency in the 2019 general election.
Describing the celebrant, Hon. Alh. Aminu Suleiman said, “Today, the whole country is gathered here to celebrate just one great man called Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. When you see what is going on in Lagos state you would know that Asiwaju Tinubu is the man of the people and I can recall on the speech he made when Mr president was there, he said the ship of the party was driving to the wrong direction but God has used him today to turn it back to the right direction before the ship crashed, so I really praise and thanked Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the speech he made, he has made a very good speech. He is indeed a great leader and I’m glad to be among those celebrating his birthday today, he stated”.
The Kebbi state chairman commending the wide acceptance of President Muhammadu Buhari while commissioning the Legacy projects of Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode in Lagos He said, “The president is in Lagos to commissioned some projects by Gov. Ambode and they assured him that just like the support he got from Lagos in 2015, he is going to get more support in 2019. PDP are gone forever and they are not coming back. Akinwunmi Ambode is a performing governor, his second term is automatic seeing the wide acceptance from his people. If you go to Lekki, GRA, Victoria island and other areas of Lagos you will think you’re in London”, he declared.
The PDP are just deceiving themselves and wasting their time of returning to power. If they’re serious that Nigerians should forgive them why, have they not return all the loots they had stolen from Nigeria.
President buhari was here in 2012 and we were all here and God have been using him since 2015. He has come back again and if as an opposition we could removed the incumbent government, i think it’s very easy for us to drive the train now as the ruling party and win 2019 election.
When asked why he is seeking to Contest in the 2019 general election, he shared that, I”m from Kebbi state, I am going to run for the position of federal house of representatives in 2019 representing Benni-Kebbi federal constituency and by the grace of God we shall give our people quality service. I’m going for the federal house of Representative because of the love for my people and to support president buhari.
As you can see, Mr. President have good plans for this country but, some of the Abuja lawmakers have been trying to make this government difficult. I believe, joining the house, I’ll be to contribute my quota for Mr. President and bring good representation to my state.
He further reviewed some of the success story of his state Governor, Alh. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi he stated, “My governor is here already and we are giving all the full support and we’re together with him earlier. Kebbi state and Lagos state already have joint venture business for lake rice, as a result of the lake rice business now most of our people have travelled all over China to get information so it’s wonderful and I want you to visit kebbi to see numerous infrastructural developments and people oriented programs going on in the state by His excellency, Alh. Atiku Bagudu.

Earlier in his chairman speech, President Muhammadu Buhari said’ I am happy to be here with you to celebrate the birthday of my friend and political partner, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I call on all Nigerians to join me in celebrating this man. Asiwaju Tinubu is widely known as a political strategist. But strategy is barren unless wedded to a higher purpose than just itself. Here, Asiwaju also sets himself apart. I have come to see him as a man who cares about people and who is a fountain of ideas for economic development and improving the situation of the common man and woman. He is a true humanitarian and we appreciate his contributions to Nigeria’s and Africa’s progress.
Meanwhile, the Vice president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo during his remarks said, “Most of us had worked with the then Governor of Lagos State, Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for several years, some for four years, some for eight years. And we decided that every year, on the occasion of his birthday, we would take time to discuss matters of national importance. Part of the reason why we did so was because Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was an unusual governor in Lagos State.
Let me say why it was unusual. The reason why it was unusual was because it was a government where there was a great deal of argument and he, as the leader of that government, allowed so much argument and so many different shades of ideas.
I want to just commend Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu again, for ensuring that, not only did he develop a whole generation of persons who have become, in various respects leaders, but also that he allowed that group of people to develop ideas to contradict him many times, to controvert his own ideas many times, and many times, he gave in to those ideas, and we’ve seen the results of it.
