To mark his 61st birthday, The friends of Kwankwso in Lagos organized a cocktail party in honour of the “man of the people”, to show appreciation for his ideological doggedness and his ceaseless advocacy for education and support for the youth.
According to Mrs Tokunbo Edun, the proprietress of Grace Schools, who was also one of the chief organizers of the event, Kwankwaso is a leader per excellent, one that has contributed immensely to Nigerian democracy, adding that Nigerians should appreciate the sacrificial leader.
“Words cannot sufficiently describe what amount of blessing Senator Kwankwaso is to this generation, at this time and period.
“Of a truth, Nigeria needs more leaders like him who can dedicate their everything to national good rather than for selfish interests.
“It is sad how some supposed leaders pile up billions of citizens hard earned currency only for themselves and family, while others wallow in abject poverty.
Mrs Agboola Fisher Thomas also stated that Kwankwaso is a man with an ideal worthy of emulation
“If not for the strong conviction of Asiwaju Tinubu that ousted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from power after 16 years of selfish leadership, only God knows what fate would have befallen the country by now.
“We celebrate your doggedness, selflessness and kind heart on this occasion of your 61st birthday and pray that we see more of you in good health,” Mrs Fisher said.
