“During the dark days when democracy was assaulted in this country, we suffered a lot, the family suffered and as a result of that, she was in America while I was criss-crossing Europe.

“It was a very trying period for every one of us as my wife single handedly raised our children.

“We endured and got through all the turbulence and today we are still in positions to serve our nation and serve our people,” he said

The former governor of Lagos who expressed happiness as his wife attained 60, thanked God for sparing their lives and preserving their love together.

“We mark the day with soberness. Soberness because many people pray to live to see today but they could not.

“The pandemic has taken away some of our friends, those close to us.

“Today, some people are still lying critically ill in the hospital. Some children have become orphans as a result of what is happening around the country.

“So, it is a sombre celebration on the occasion of her 60th.

“For Nigeria, turning 60 is also a moment for reflection about all that we have been through and where we are,” he said

Mr Tinubu added that he wished his wife to live longer and for her legacy to be great.
