Note to Ali-Balogun on his birthday by Abeegunde.
As leader, you have succeeded in proving to us that the main challenge of political leadership in our country is to reconnect democratic choices with people’s day to day experience and to extend principles to everyday situations in citizens, community and constituencies.
This is what has set you apart from others. This is one major lesson, I have learned from you as a relentless democrat. Ali-B, I have learned also from you the value of never giving up even when all odds are against you in political struggles. I belief in your leadership, you are a strategist, tactician and a comrade in politics. Your belief in me and support since I met you through my boss, Ishola Olateju is superb which I will always cherish. Thank you for all you do Ali-B.
Let me also, use this opportunity to appreciate your struggles in giving voice to Nigerian youth in your office, you have took many step, that shows how passionate you are about the future of this nation.
As you add a year today, I joined, your friends, family and Political associate to celebrate a man of many part, a lover of masses and veteran in political struggle. May God bless your new age.
Once again, Happy birthday Ali-B.
