Don't turn your back on us – Tinubu

Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu has appealed to
Femi Falana and Kunle Ajibade to join hands with the All
Progressives Congress, APC, and President Muhammadu Buhari,
to make Nigeria a better place.
He said this in a joint birthday message to the duo on Monday,
describing them as icons in their chosen fields.
He wrote: “Falana, born May 20, 1958, and Kunle Ajibade, born on
May 28, 1958, recently turned 60. Both are close friends and
associates, with whom I have interacted in our continuous struggle
for the enthronement of true democracy, good governance and rule
of law.
“Mr. Falana is a lawyer, pro-democracy and human rights activist
who over time employed and continues to employ the
instrumentality of the law to correct the ills of the society.
“His contributions to constitutionalism and jurisprudence know no
bounds. He takes briefs from the rich to empower him to fight the
injustices against the poor pro bono. Like his late mentor and
comrade, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, Falana is an advocate of the
people, of the masses.
“Ajibade is that astute journalist and celebrated author who
through his pen fought against the military junta and was
particularly a thorn in the flesh of the late Abacha regime.
“He authored two popular books ‘Jailed for Life,’ his experience in
prison to which he was clamped by the Abacha junta, and ‘What a
Country,’ which speaks about the ills in the country.
“As both were united in their month of birth, there is also an
unmistakable meeting point in their life trajectories. Both fought
against successive military regimes to facilitate the emergence of
democracy in the land and a country laden with respect for human
“They fought to ensure Nigeria is a citadel of social justice and
rule of law and generally a better place for the present generation
and generations yet unborn.
There is no doubt that both Falana and Ajibade had impacted
Nigeria and Nigerians in the most profound ways.

Can the south east (Igbo speaking tribe) produce the next Nigerian President come 2023?
