National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his 79th birthday.
The politician however said he doesn’t envy the President.
According to him, President Buhari’s tenure has faced some of the most difficult and challenging situations, adding that the country has survived all the challenges.
The APC leader asserted that the president had continued to lead the country on a path of development, adding that Buhari has completed all infrastructure projects abandoned by the past government.
In a congratulatory message he personally signed on Friday, Tinubu appreciated the President on his 79th birthday and extolled the President’s achievements in office.
The statement reads: “Your tenure in office has coincided with some of the most difficult and challenging times this country and, indeed, the entire global community has faced.
“Economic crises, global pandemics, insecurity and criminality have all played a role in making the past few years difficult for the people of our great country.
“Yet, despite it all, you continue, calmly and with uncommon dignity, to steer the ship of Nigeria through the most turbulent of waters.
“I, therefore, wish to appreciate the unseen and underappreciated work that you have done and continue to do to guide Nigeria ever nearer to its manifest destiny.”
The former Lagos governor described the President as a friend and brother, adding that his legacy as a great reformer and democrat will live long into the future.
“Unheralded reforms and measures taken by your administration are also taking effect to bring greater transparency and accountability to governance.
“I wish you a wonderful birthday and many more years in good health and renewed strength.
“Happy birthday Mr President.”
