“When the history of Lagos would be written, it would not be complete without a mention of this charismatic enigma, ” Mr Tunde Braimoh, the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Strategy and Publicity, said.

The lawmaker said that the state would be eternally grateful to Tinubu, one of its former governors, for laying a solid foundation for it.

Braimoh, representing Kosofe Constituency II in the House, described Tinubu as a good listener and somebody God had endowed with so many gifts.

“Tinubu is very witty and gifted with spontaneous response to issues. He is someone we adore a lot because God created him specially.

“He has empathy, believes in welfarism, live and let live. To his wife, he is one of the best husbands; you see a passionate leader in him.

“He knows what you are going through once he sees you. You don’t need to talk once you get to him. Tinubu knows what is good for everybody,” he said.

Mr Victor Akande (PDP-Ojo I) lauded Tinubu for being a “genuine leader with uncommon interest in the down trodden and less privileged”

Akande said that Tinubu’s doggedness and courage in politics remained an inspiration for him.

“He is a courageous and fearless leader, a patriot and a motivator, a builder of men and women and a strategic thinker,” he said.

Mr David Setonji (APC-Badagry II) said that Tinubu would continue to be relevant in the political sphere because of his numerous achievements.

According to Mr Gbolahan Yishawu, representing Eti/Osa Constituency II at the Assembly, Asiwaju Tinubu is a father, a visionary leader and a mentor.

Yishawu said: “It is a thing of joy that Tinubu has turned 65; through him, God has blessed Nigeria, he (Tinubu) is a leading light of Nigerian modern politics.

“He is the pillar of Nigerian modern democracy. He is a tenacious man, his upbeat spirit has helped him to carve a niche for himself in the society. His policy is to liberate the people from oppression.

“Today, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has become a household name because of his passion for the grassroots. He is a man with dignity and vision. He is a divine leader.

“He is a humanist, those of us that are close to him know that he never wants to see anybody suffer or leave anybody behind.

” Tinubu is a crusader of change that brought President Muhammadu Buhari into office. Tinubu is a crusader of progress, good governance and development.”
