Senator Gbenga Ashafa has praised the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu over the emergence of former Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola and APC spokesperson, Lai Mohammed as ministers.

Fashola and Mohammed were confirmed by the Senate as members of President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet on Wednesday, October 14, 2015.

Ashafa, via a statement released on Thursday, 15, credited Tinubu for the foresight that brought the ministers to the limelight.

The statement reads in part:

I, Senator Gbenga Ashafa, representing the Lagos East Senatorial Constituency, hereby congratulate the 18 eminent Nigerians, who were today confirmed as ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

I am particularly proud of the intelligence, poise and grace with which our own Former Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), conducted himself throughout his time addressing us in the Red Chambers.

His thoughts and plans were illuminating as always. He represented Lagos State very well on that podium and will do very well in the Federal Executive Council. Of that, I have no doubt.

The revered National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and Former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, should be proud of himself on a day like this.

It was his foresightedness and uncanny judge of character and talent that brought the likes of our Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed; Former Ekiti Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi; and Mr. Fashola to limelight. These three are graduates of the Bola Tinubu School of Leadership and today, they are ministerial appointees.

This is indeed a lifting moment for us all who have climbed on Asiwaju’s broad shoulders to our current heights in political and leadership accomplishments. May the Almighty bless our leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and increase him in wisdom and good health.
