Governor Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa on Saturday stunned his audience, as he described the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman, Chief Tony Anenih, as a pacesetter and “our leader.”
Al-Makura, who spoke during the Grand Graduation Ceremony of Pace-Setters Schools at the weekend in Abuja, showered encomiums on Anenih and charged Nigerian youths, especially the graduating students, to imbibe the PDP chieftain’s leadership qualities.
He said, “Tony Anenih is a pacesetter anytime, anywhere.
“He was a pacesetter in his chosen profession. He is a pacesetter in his current capacity as the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the PDP.
“I urge you graduating students (of Pacesetters’ College) to emulate his virtues. He led successful political parties in the past and he’s still doing that” adding, “He is our leader.”
In his remarks, Anenih enjoined parents to invest in the education of their children, noting that it remained the best legacy anyone could bequeath to their wards.
