In their communiqué after the Stakeholders’ meeting, on Saturday, the APC in Enugu state extended felicitations to President Bola Tinubu on his 72nd birthday, noting the celebration’s alignment with Good Friday and the Holy month of Ramadan.

The stakeholders lauded President Tinubu for initiating economic reforms, particularly acknowledging the gradual stabilization of foreign exchange.
