The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) has congratulated a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, as he celebrates his 69th birthday.

The Chairman of the Forum and the Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, in a statement issued Sunday said the governors acknowledged and commended his untiring and selfless leadership and commitment to a united prosperous Nigeria.

He said: “We acknowledge your contributions to the emergence and growth of our party, APC. Emerging from opposition to a governing party through hard and very difficult negotiations, which has bestowed upon us the responsibility of managing the affairs our dear country is a historic achievement that past political leaders of Nigeria were unable to achieve.”

The Forum noted that under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, in partnership with many other leaders of the party, including Tinubu, the politics of Nigeria is passing through fundamental changes, which is a necessary condition for the institution of an enduring progressive governance.

The Forum added: “As our national leader, you certainly represent one of the inspirations for our successes.”

The Forum noted that it would always continue to look up to Tinubu for inspiring guidance.
