Lagos AC Congratulates Chief Mrs. Tinubu on her National Honour Award.
The Lagos State chapter of the Action Congress has lauded the indefatigable wife of our leader and former first lady of Lagos State, Her Excellency, Chief Mrs. Oluremi Tinubu as she is decorated with the esteemed national honour of Officer of the Order of the Niger by President Goodluck Jonathan. The party sees the national honour on Chief Mrs. Tinubu as a just recognition of the courageous efforts of then former first lady in improving the lives of Nigerians through her well recommended New Era Foundation.
In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the AC, Joe Igbokwe, the party describes Mrs. Tinubu as a jewel of inestimable value, who complimented the untiring efforts of her husband in uplifting the status of Lagos, improving the conditions of Lagosians and indeed the Nigerian nation. The party rejoices with Mrs. Tinubu and urges her to see her national honour as a deserved pat on the back for her tremendous efforts in Lagos.
“Mrs. Tinubu remains a positive role model, a worthy inspiration to Nigerians, especially the youths and a leading light in the task to uplift the country from long years of squalor. We observe that during the very successful reign of her husband in Lagos State, Mrs. Tinubu was a competent compliment to her husband, an active soul mate and a strong pillar of support in the difficult task of governing Lagos. Through her popular New Era Foundation, Mrs. Tinubu created a positive focus for Lagos youths so much so that the impacts of her activities still resonate all over Lagos even now.
“Mrs. Tinubu remains a committed and trusted wife, a strong character that worked tirelessly to enrich the works of her husband as Lagos State Governor and as one of the most influential political leaders in the country at present. She remains a veritable example of womanhood and a shinning positive example of a focused first lady.
“Lagos AC sees her national honour as well merited and a worthy acknowledgment of her contributions to humanity. We therefore rejoice with Chief. Mrs. Oluremi Tinubu on this great occasion. We salute her laudable achievements and we call on her not to flag in her relentless efforts to improve the lots of Lagosians and indeed Nigerians.”
