Niger Delta Youth Leader, Amb. John Dekawei, APC Youth leader in South South have congratulated the President Elect, Bola Tinubu on his 71st Birth Anniversary.

The renowned Niger Delta philanthropist, Amb. John Dekawei while congratulating the President Elect on his birth anniversary stated that Nigeria will be better under Bola Tinubu as President come May 29th 2023.

This was contained in a statement he personally signed in Warri earlier today, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.

While describing Tinubu as the right man to govern the country at this point in time, Dekawei said the President elect will bring his wealth of experience as a former Governor of Lagos State to turn things around for the good of Nigerians.

However, Dekawei have called on all aggrieved persons and parties in the country to accept the outcome of the election and jointly move the country forward, adding that the ways of God is not the ways of man, stressing that the Lord Almighty have chosen Tinubu.

Dekawei had particularly prayed to the Lord Almighty to protect, guide and give him more wisdom as he gears up to pilot Nigeria to the promised land where everything will be good for the country.

The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide can report that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, has directed that special prayers and thanksgiving service be held on Wednesday to mark his 71st birthday instead of the annual birthday colloquium.

A statement from his office on Monday issued by his media officer, Tunde Rahman, indicated that special prayers would be offered at the Central Mosque in each of the five divisions in Lagos State including the Central Mosque in the Alausa area of Ikeja.

Rahman said that during the prayer sessions, special prayers will be offered for the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.

This year will be the third in recent times that the birthday colloquium would not hold in deference to developments in the country.

In 2020, the 12th edition of the colloquium marking the president-elect 68th birthday was called off to empathise with those who lost their lives or affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year, the birthday symposium was also called off by Tinubu right at the venue of the event, when news of the Abuja-Kaduna train terror attack in which several persons died and many others abducted, was reported.

In 2023, the president-elect urged his supporters not to bother planning any surprise package for his birthday, which falls within the Holy month of Ramadan.

The former Lagos governor pleaded that they should dedicate it instead to prayers, seeking God’s guidance for him and the country as he prepares to take the reins of leadership.
