Although political rivals, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has hailed the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu on his 68th birthday.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 209 elections joined other stakeholders to celebrate the APC Chieftain.
“On behalf of my family, I wish you, @AsiwajuTinubu, a happy 68th birthday. I also pray many more years for you, in good health and strength. Best wishes,” he wrote on Sunday morning.
Tinubu was given birth to on the 29th of March 1952 by Chief Abibatu Mogaji, a trader who eventually became the Iyaloja of Lagos.
However, his political career began in 1992, on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (Nigeria) where he was a member of the faction of the Peoples Front led by Shehu Musa Yar’Adua.
He was elected to the Nigerian Senate, representing Lagos West constituency in the short-lived Nigerian Third Republic.
In 1999, he contested for the position of Executive Governor of Lagos State on the AD ticket and was elected.
