• Veteran journalist, ace communicator and Bola Tinubu’s Chief-of-Staff clocks 50

At 50, Sunday Dare treads in the footsteps of illustrious men. Like the fabled genius and leader of men, his sojourn from birth through adolescence to the present, while towards the stars, leeves the vivid air signed with his honour and exploits. Fifty years of brilliance, performance and resounding success markedly distinguishes Sunday Dare as a creative genius and indispensable part of journalism and Nigeria’s success story.

Besides his wonderful exploits as a journalist, Dare’s exceptional tenure as a part of Lion of Bourdillon, Bola Tinubu’s winning team is worthy of note and acclaim. Like a tsar of remarkable character and descent, Dare summons infinite aces up his sleeves in his extraordinary sojourn as an award-winning journalist and now, as a crucial part of All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Tinubu’s team.

In 50 years, Dare has evolved from a conscientious journalist to an exceptional cache of genius and pride, by dint of hard work. Against all odds, he forged his path through random crucibles of trials and daunting intrigues to become one of Nigeria’s most adept political and media strategists.

His type is definitely not common and the distinction is crucial. Dare’s sterling achievements as a journalist, media strategist and Tinubu’s Chief of Staff (COS) attest to the fact that he represents new realities and possibilities in every field he ventures into. The years he spent honing his talent and competency undoubtedly, conferred upon him that rare quality that most contemporary journalists and media/communication strategists possess: judgment, tact and unassailable wisdom.

Men who dare to pioneer remarkable forays in politics are often pigeonholed and fended off to the margins. But that has never been the fate of Dare and this is attributable to his capacity to rise to every challenge with appropriate tenacity, ingenuity and verve required to resolve the most pressing problems.

Dare is a pragmatist with admirable sense of right and wrong and an idealist who is comfortable with the exercise of resourcefulness and brilliance, invaluable traits he painstakingly nurtures in the course of his work. This explains his capacity to be effective, even in this unstable clime of cutthroat competition and economic depression.

As you read, plans are in top gear to celebrate the man known to most people as the engine room of two-time Governor of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s office on Sunday, May 29, 2016; SD as many prefer to call him, is known for his unpretentious modesty. He prefers to silently remain behind the scenes making things happen rather than for him to be loud and unnecessarily in the spotlight. Not a few people envy his ability and extraordinary depth at managing the Asiwaju brand over the years think he deserves to be celebrated.

So come Saturday, May 28, 2016 all roads would lead to Ikoyi Baptist Church, where a Thanksgiving service has been scheduled, with the tag “Lets come give thanks for his life.” Another more exclusive shindig is planned for later that day at another venue. The APC top echelon, notable editors and other guests are expected to be there.
