    President Bola Tinubu on Friday joined other great Nigerians to congratulate the Chairman of the Board of the United Bank for Africa, Mr. Tony Elumelu, on his 61st birthday.

    The congratulatory message was contained in a statement signed by Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale.

    The statement is titled, ‘President Tinubu celebrates top business leader, Tony Elumelu, on his birthday.’

    “President Tinubu wishes Mr. Elumelu many more years in good health and strength as he persists in his endeavour of contributing substantially to national and continental development,” the statement read in part.

    Tinubu lauded the foremost businessman and philanthropist, who chairs Heirs Holdings, Transcorp, United Bank for Africa, and is the founder of The Tony Elumelu Foundation.

    Commending Elumelu for his industry and the uncommon spirit of excellence that governs the entirety of his enterprise, the President acknowledged the business leader’s “streak of genius in driving investments, creating opportunities for Africa’s ebullient youths, and providing them with the support they need to soar.”

    He also thanked Elumelu, who in 2020 was named on Time’s list of 100 most influential people in the world, for his steadfast trust and faith in the certainty of a greater Nigeria and for always projecting the best of the nation.
