Sanwo-Olu, others celebrate Tinubu on his 72nd birthday

In another development, Legit.ng reported earlier that celebratory messages continue to pour in for President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he marks 72 years.

This is the first time Tinubu will be celebrating his birthday as Nigeria's president. And interestingly, the date coincides with Good Friday in 2024, making it a double celebration for him.

As expected, most of the goodwill messages are from top Nigerian leaders in political circles like governors, former presidents and others.

Sanwo-Olu noted in his message that Tinubu’s financial wizardry and economic intellect, which he put to good use as the governor of Lagos have taken the state to a greater height.
