Bola tinubu, rauf aregbesola
Rauf Aregbesola and Bola Tinubu
Former Osun State Governor and Minister of Interior, Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola has written an epistle to greet his political benefactor and President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his 71st birthday.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu marked his 71st birthday on March 29 and he was widely celebrated by people across the world as he personally asked people to celebrate his birthday with prayers, rather than the usual colloquium that is usually held, annually, in commemoration of his birthday.

Although the message came 72 hours after the birthday of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Rauf Aregbesola wrote a strong message, stating three reasons the 71st birthday of his political benefactor, Tinubu is a unique one.

The birthday message sent to Bola Tinubu by Aregbesola was full of warning, regarding the elderly age and position that he has attained.

Aregbesola's message to Tinubu reads:


Your 71st birthday anniversary is unique because of the following:
1. A climax of political aspiration and attainment.
2. A remarkable milestone in life and a sign of divine grace.
3. A testimony to political resilience, sagacity and tenacity.

You must indeed be eternally grateful to almighty Allah for his immeasurable support and mercy in your life.
Your life is memorable; it is therefore important to emphasize Yoruba ethos of leadership for reflection.

Age is the essential qualification for leadership in our clime. Professor Gbadegeshin outlined the various categories of Yoruba elders. These are Agba, Agbalagba and Agbasanko. These are the core and soul of a Yoruba community. They determine its morality, virtue and character.

At 71, you are already in that league of AGBA in our community. Your inclusion among the communal icons and exemplars puts on you some stark realities. Agba kii soro bi ewe. Agba kii wa l’oja ki ori omo tuntun wo. Enu Agba lobi ti ngbo. Agba ni ngba, etc.

Having become an Agba by age, status and attainment, you therefore need this admonition.

Alhaji Agba, Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, in one of his lyrics, said “Oke agba ni mo gun ema jen jabo”. May Allah SWT fulfill this supplication in our lives. Aamin.

Six years ago when a group of associates held a birthday event for me in Osogbo. One of them sang the song that I am using as the theme of this tribute. It is my birthday presentation to you and conclusion of this piece.

🎶Asiwaju se pele o, (Asiwaju be careful o)
Oke agba lo gun yi o, e (You've now attained an elderly position)

Jagaban se pele o, (Jagaban be careful o)
Oke agba lo gun yi o, e (You've now attained an elderly position).

Oko Senator Oluremi se pele o (Husband of Senator Oluremi be careful o)
Oke agba lo gun yi o, e (You've now attained an elderly position)

President elect se pele o, (President-elect be careful o)
Oke agba lo gun yi o, e.🎶 (You've attained elderly position);

May Allah SWT bestow on you good health, sound mind, clear vision, great strength and complete wisdom for the task ahead. Aamin.
