Former Lagos Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is 68 but the usual merriment that follows each of his birthdays has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) stalwart is, therefore, having a low key birthday. As he clocked 68 yesterday, many messages of felicitation has come in from politicians across party lines, and from others who are on the other side of the divide.

Let see some of their felicitation messages for the man who has been dubbed the Jagaban of Lagos.
Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Delta:
Tinubu’s selfless service to the nation and his many accomplishments in personal and public life readily comes to mind at a time like this.
As a national leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has continued to play significant roles in the growth and development of the nation as political bridge-builder. Let me urge members of my party, the PDP to learn from the patience, consistency, and loyalty to the course of opposition as epitomised by Bola Tinubu.
On behalf of my family, the government and people of Delta, I congratulate His Excellency, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as he celebrates his 68th birth anniversary.
Governor Kayode Fayemi, Ekiti:
Certainly, Asiwaju’s actions inspire us -his admirers – to dream more, learn more, do more and become more. He is a political colossus who will continue to bestride the Nigerian political landscape for many more years to come.
While wishing you a joyous birthday, I wish to observe as one of your admirers that you have indeed paid your dues and your birthday has become a festival, even if the COVID-19 has precluded us from a deserved celebration in your honour.
On behalf of my family, the government and good people of Ekiti State, the Land of Honour, I wish our indefatigable leader many more productive years in the service of our fatherland even as you retain your charm and political sagacity.
Governor Sani Bello, Niger
Turning 68 is a huge milestone especially to someone who never gets tired of doing great things in great ways; someone who has provided the much-needed guide on each step of the way;
Someone who in spite of the cumbersome nature of our political terrain has successfully led us in the right direction.
Sir your honest commitment to democracy will continue to serve as a beacon of hope to all Nigerians.
Governor Yahaya Bello:
On behalf of the Government and the good people of Kogi State,I wish to celebrate with Your Excellency on the occasion of your 68th Birthday celebration.
You have exhibited uncommon wisdom, remarkable vision, and exemplary leadership to deserve our greatest respect for the lives you have touched and the stability you have brought to our party in your capacity as the National Leader Of our great party; the APC.
In the course of decades, you have made extraordinary memories and woven your own unique story into the Nigerian narrative. As you reflect on your contributions to our nation and humanity at large, we trust you take tremendous pride in all you have accomplished”.
Happy Birthday, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
All Progressives Congress (APC):
On behalf of the leadership and entire members of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), we join other well-meaning Nigerians to celebrate our National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his 68th birthday.
Senate President Ahmed Lawan:
I join other well-meaning Nigerians to rejoice with the family, friends and political associates of the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who turned 68 today.
Senate Vice President Ovie Omo-Agege:
Your antecedents are clear attestations to my belief that you still have a lot to render to your fatherland; a Senator who later set the template for the greatness and viability of Lagos State; a political icon known for standing resolutely for democracy during the military era & leading eminent patriots towards actualising the restoration of democracy.
Your capacity to work vibrantly with people across all forms of divide has enriched Nigeria’s politics and fostered tremendous unity of purpose such as that which birthed the All Progressives Congress.
I have no doubt that, for you and all your ardent followers, this birthday will signpost a renewal of hope and the strong resolve to lift our nation higher, even in the face of daunting odds.
I heartily felicitate with you, the family, friends, associates and innumerable admirers as you clock 68 today.
I wish you good health and greater prosperity in the years ahead.
Abiola Ajimobi, former Oyo Governor:
Asiwaju, Over the years you have exhibited uncommon wisdom, remarkable vision, political sagacity and exemplary leadership since your advent in our country’s political landscape. Congratulations and happy birthday Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
