All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has congratulated former PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, on his 85 birthday. He prayed to Almighty Allah to grant him more years and good health.
In a special birthday congratulatory statement issued on Tuesday by his Media Office and signed by Mr. Tunde Rahman, the former Lagos governor said: “Bamanga Tukur is an elder-statesman, prominent businessman and astute political leader who has served this country creditably in many capacities.
“His records at Ports Authority where he was once Chief Executive Officer and as governor of defunct Gongola State are particularly remarkable.
“I acknowledge, admire, and respect his sterling qualities, commitment to democracy, and good governance in Nigeria and his contributions to party politics over the years, though we belong to different political parties.
“As he turns 85 today, I beseech Almighty Allah to continue to imbue him with good health and robust energy and grant him more years to continue in the service of our country and humanity.”
