As Nigerians extend their wishes to Tinubu, Ghanaians warmly celebrate their leader, Akufo-Addo.

Both presidents hail from influential backgrounds, with Tinubu, aged 72, born into Lagos' esteemed merchant family, and Akufo-Addo, 80, born to a well-known Ghanaian royal and political family.

Akufo-Addo pursued Law in the UK, while Tinubu studied Business Administration in the United States before venturing into politics.

Tinubu's political journey saw him secure the Lagos West senate seat in 1992, followed by governorship and the formation of the All Progressives Congress, leading to his presidential victory in the 2023 elections.

Meanwhile, Akufo-Addo's path led him through various ministerial roles before assuming the presidency in 2017, followed by a successful reelection in 2020.

Both leaders face critical junctures in their tenures, with Nigeria grappling with economic challenges and escalating kidnappings, while Akufo-Addo navigates a contentious issue surrounding an anti-LGBTQ bill in Ghana.
