The governor urged members of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to learn from Tinubu’s consistency and loyalty to APC’s cause and remain committed to ensuring  the party’s return to power in 2023.

According to him, Tinubu deserves commendation for his leadership role in improving the nation’s political space.

“As the 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 cause 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.”

Okowa said that in the process of Tinubu’s  political journey, he had inspired many to become great leaders in the polity and business world.

“I join your family, friends, business associates and well-wishers to thank Almighty God for your life and to pray that He continues to bless you with robust health and imbue you with His continued guidance, protection, and enduring provision.” .
