NATIONAL leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,
said, yesterday, that Lagos and Kano states must remain peaceful, given their
large population and economic potential. This came on a day President Muhammadu
Buhari, President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan; Deputy Senate
President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege; the Progressive Governors’ Forum, PGF;
Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Rotimi Akeredolu of Lagos and Ondo states,
respectively, and the APC, yesterday, hailed Tinubu on his 69th birthday,
saying he has nurtured talents for the benefit of the country.

Tinubu said this when he paid a visit to Aminu Ado Bayero, Emir of Kano, as
part of the activities slated to mark his (Tinubu) birthday. The former
governor of Lagos said Kano and the centre of excellence, which possess common
population densities and hold economic growth, must lead other parts of the
country on a peaceful mission. Tinubu said: “Nigeria is going through difficult
times especially challenges of insecurity and other tough times. Yet there
cannot be peace, development and industrial growth in the country in the
absence of peace and stability.

“Kano being the most populous state of the Federation has enjoyed stability
and peace despite the challenges in Nigeria. The Governors have promoted unity;
sustained one Nigeria in the face of difference. We must commend them.”

personality. The monarch said this is evident with Tinubu’s attendance of the
Arewa House Lecture in Kaduna and series of the colloquium organized which he
said shows how patriotic he (Tinubu) is. The monarch said: “We are commending
you for attending Arewa House Lecture in Kaduna. This shows how patriotic you are.

“In the last five, I attended a similar Colloquium in Lagos. We saw how you
(Tinubu) went round places, which shows how you’ve become a unifying factor.”
