These were the words with which former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, described a former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in a letter he personally signed and sent to congratulate the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress on his 69th birthday on Monday.

Daniel said this when members of the 100 Women Lobby Group paid him an advocacy visit at his home in Sagamu, Ogun State, a statement by the group’s Public Relations Officer, Olubukola Okuneye, said on Monday.

In the broadcast, he declared: “How did we work to get out of this debt quagmire? We did it by resolving and working hard to break with the past; by identifying new voices and new leaders; and by rejecting business as usual and voting for new values of accountability, transparency, fair competition, social justice, and the upliftment of the living standards of Nigerians. We revamped our institutions and put in place an economic agenda that reduced the role of the state in the economy while strengthening the place and role private investors. We mounted a vigorous global campaign to make a good case for debt relief.”
