All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has been congratulated by Senator Tokunbo Abiru on the occasion of the conferment of a honorary doctorate degree on her by the Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo.
In a statement in Lagos, Abiru, who represents Lagos East in the National Assembly, lauded the contributions of the former Lagos State First Lady to the growth of education in the state and the country.
He said: “I rejoice with Her Excellency, Senator Oluremi Tinubu (OON) on the conferment of Honourary Doctorate Degree in Public Administration on you by Lagos State University, Ojoo.
This is one of the several honours you have received in recognition of your unequalled dedication to public service and in particular gender- related issues, which have been central to your political advocacy.
You are an astute administrator and a major voice for the vulnerable members of our society. In demonstration of your commitment to this cause, you established the New Era Foundation (NEF) in 2000, a social development vehicle that empowers women; develops youths; funds education of vulnerable children; and also redirects their focus to the path of greatness.
This latest honour attests to your commitment and passion to human capital development and emancipation of the vulnerable. On this note, Her Excellency, I congratulate you on behalf of the people of Lagos East, and pray Almighty God will continue to give you the grace and wisdom to impact on society.”
