“Flowing from the above, you will agree with me that it is befitting to hold the upcoming national event in his honour and as a lasting memory. It is for this reason that Tinubu Hope of Nigeria Vanguard has carefully chosen a theme for the event that resonates with every Nigerian who is also passionate and loves Nigeria.” Daudu remarked.
