The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has called on Mr Femi Falana (SAN) and veteran journalist, Mr Kunle Ajibade, to join hands with the party to move Nigeria forward.

In a birthday message to the duo, Tinubu described Falana and Ajibade as icons in their chosen fields, whose contributions would continue to mean much to the country.
The message was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Lagos by Tinubu’s Media Officer, Mr Tunde Rahman.
Falana was born on May 20, 1958, while Ajibade was born on May 28, 1958.
“The month of May which in 1999 heralded the rebirth of democracy in Nigeria after almost 16 years of unbroken military interregnum, is also significant in one other respect.
“It is the month of birth of many prominent Nigerians.

“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 country,” Tinubu noted.

He said that Falana and Ajibade fought to ensure that Nigeria would be a citadel of social justice,  rule of law and a better place for generations.

“There is no doubt that both Falana and Ajibade had impacted on Nigeria and Nigerians in the most profound ways.
 “We thank them for their struggles and we thank them for their sacrifices but we are not yet in the Promised Land.
“We enjoin the duo not to rest on their oars but join hands with us in the APC, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, to make Nigeria a better place,” Tinubu said.
