Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun, who spoke through virtual participation at the 12th Tinubu Colloquium, said the national leader provided many of them with opportunity to serve.

“Your towering accomplishments from the corporate world to being Senator of the Federal Republic, representing Lagos West, to being elected twice as governor and as the only governor standing during the 2003 tsunami, are testimonies of a political titan.

“Like phoenix, you are not cowed as the undisputable vanguard of progressive politics, irrepressible statesman and an icon whose unconditional service and time-tested leadership inspire hope in us. We are very proud of you and would continue to cherish your heritage of responsible statesmanship. You have nurtured a wide range of human endeavor. It amounts to statesmanship that your birthday is celebrated in Kano.”
