On behalf of my darling wife, Ibijoke, Government and the people of Lagos State, as well as leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress, I congratulate Senator Tokunbo Abiru on his Diamond Jubilee celebration.

Senator Abiru has displayed excellent leadership in the banking sector. He showed leadership during his tenure as the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Polaris Bank Limited before he left the bank to become a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

As Commissioner for Finance in Lagos State, Senator Abiru brought many positive reforms to the Ministry of Finance in the State.

As Senator, Abiru has contributed immensely to the legislative business in the Red Chamber. His inputs to national growth, especially on the floor of the Senate are pragmatic testament to his visionary leadership.

As he celebrates his 60th birthday, I pray that God will increase him in good health to enable him render more service to humanity, Lagos State and Nigeria.
