Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, has lauded the contributions of the All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to the growth of democracy and good governance in Nigeria.
A statement by Tinubu Media Office on Wednesday said Nnamani spoke when he visited Tinubu at his Bourdillon, Ikoyi, Lagos residence to extend his good wishes to him after the former Lagos governor’s return from the United Kingdom.
Nnamani was quoted to have said, “Your many contributions to the growth of democracy in Nigeria ‘stand strong.’ Your role in NADECO (National Democratic Coalition) and your efforts along with those of others helped in terminating military rule.
He also presented to Tinubu his new book titled, ‘Standing Strong: Legislative Reforms, Third Term and Other Issues of the 5th Senate,’ due to be presented to the public on October 21 in Abuja.
Nnamani said the former Lagos governor’s support was invaluable to him during his time as Senate President, particularly during the bid to stop the third term agenda of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
“You helped many times in stabilising the country; you assisted me a lot during my time as the Senate President and particularly in stopping the third term project of former President Obasanjo,” he said.
Reacting, Tinubu thanked the former Senate President for the visit.
He congratulated him for putting together his experience in office which he said would be helpful for the country.
Tinubu urged other political actors to endeavour to write books to document their experiences and efforts which would go a long way in helping the nation to solve its problems, as well as in nation-building.
