Lawmakers at the Lagos State House of Assembly expressed their admiration for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Thursday as he marked his 72nd birthday praising him for his decision to not celebrate his birthday, citing it as a display of true leadership amid the nation’s mood.

Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, attributed Lagos’ success to Tinubu’s wisdom and leadership during his tenure as governor, stating, “When Asiwaju Tinubu became governor, we all knew how much Lagos was earning. He successfully moved the revenue of the state from N600 million to over N8 billion in 2007.”

“This is not just about his birthday. It is a celebration of Lagos and where his policies have carried us. The Lagos Red Line rail project was unveiled recently and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu reiterated that the achievement can be attributed to Asiwaju who created the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) while he was governor.”

On his part, the Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Noheem Adams, in his contribution noted that the steps currently being taken by the President would bring Nigeria out of its challenges while the Deputy Majority Leader, Adedamola Richard Kasunmu, described Tinubu as a compassionate leader.

Hon. Sa’ad Olumoh said Tinubu’s journey has been one of success as seen in Lagos and his current administration at the centre. He prayed that the President’s current policies would also be beneficial to every citizen while Hon. Sylvester Ogunkelu (Epe 2) recalled how Obasa prayed in 2019 that Tinubu would be president.

Hon. Foluke Osafile commended Tinubu’s current initiatives, and Hon. Adewale Temitope prayed for Tinubu’s continued guidance and Lagos lawmakers’ prosperity.
