President Tinubu prayed that God Almighty would continue to grant the respected academician greater wisdom and strength as the Speaker successfully sustains the worthy legacy of stable and productive leadership in the House from the hallowed seat in determined pursuit of the actualization of the Renewed Hope Agenda of the governing All Progressives’ Congress-led administration of the President.
