Asiwaju Bola Ahmed TINUBU stands out in the Nigerian political and economic firmaments as an Iroko Tree.
The chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) tents are so broad that they cover everything and everyone. Bola Tinubu is a name that has become synonymous with greatest, leadership, mentoring, coaching, industry, business, philanthropy, kindness, etc.
Taken in perspective, it is easy to assume that there are folks out there who are simply the favourites of heaven and every other power that be. Bola Tinubu is one of such impractically blessed people.
Tall trees face the strongest wind, although the homeless have built homes among their branches. Notwithstanding, Bola Tinubu continues in his regular fashion of touching lives, helping those crippled from an austere life and raising leaders paying zero attention to distractions. There is no arguing the impact of his patriotic and nationalistic statesmanship and audacious leadership strides.
Bola Tinubu has been a mountain upon which hopes had been built, a giant oak tree that has sheltered the hopeless, the joyless. Today, the wide acceptance he enjoys did not fall on his laps; rather, his success story rests solidly on hard work, consistency, honesty and humility.
With thousands of leaders under Bola Tinubu’s tutelage, his leadership expertise has got the spotlight and cut the interests and approval of people across political, religious and cultural divides not because it is a new thing but because it is a continuing landmark.
All eyes with sky-high expectations are locked on Bola Tinubu as the man of the moment as he took bold steps to actualise his age-long dream of becoming the President of Nigeria. His options are to redo his records or outdo them if political fortunes smile on him during the elections.
An all-around statesman, political strategist and tactician who commands enormous influence in the polity across the country and beyond. Bola Tinubu walks the line of steward and leader, capacitated, capable, diligent and most dependable. The history of Nigerian politics will not be complete without a unique mention of his golden and legendary contributions to the Nigerian economy and politics.
It was an opinion of an old thinker that great things happen when men and God confront a mountain. As you have covenanted and contracted with heaven to serve humanity through your mandate. May the Almighty God grant you success in all your political endeavours.
