Mr. Tinubu is a leader of Nigeria’s largest opposition party.
This is contained a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati.
The statement said that Mr. Jonathan wrote to congratulate Mr. Tinubu on behalf of himself and the Federal Government.
In the letter to the former governor and leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, the President prayed for long life, prosperity and God’s guidance.
“It is my prayer that Almighty God continues to guide, guard and prosper you even as He blesses you with many more years of fulfillment,’’ Mr. Jonathan said.
