President Buhari congratulates former president Obasanjo on his birthday, tomorrow.

On the off chance that I prattle Obasanjo na 79…lol. President Buhari has healthily complimented previous President of Nigeria and senior statesman, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo as he turns 79 years of age tomorrow March fifth. In an announcement marked by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari avows that the previous president, who is drawing closer the octogenarian cycle, has contributed hugely to the organization of majority rules system in Nigeria and Africa through his giving up of one’s own priorities, broad nearby and worldwide systems, and God-given intelligence. The announcement peruses to some extent…
“President Buhari believes that Chief Obasanjo’s place in global history is assured for successfully handing over power to a civilian government in 1979 after serving as a military Head of State, and returning to power in 1999 through elections to stabilize the polity, during which he most remarkably negotiated a debt relief for Nigeria. The President warmly commends Chief Obasanjo’s vision and commitment to the growth of Nigeria and Africa, which translated into a historical growth rate of 6 percent for the Nigerian economy after a long period of slow growth, and also created a rippling effect that buoyed other African economies. As he turns 79, the President avers that the former president’s regular shuttles across Nigeria and Africa to counsel on economic, social and political issues, and his willingness to head election monitoring teams that have heralded smooth transitions in many countries are legacies which generations will remain grateful. President Buhari prays that the Almighty God will grant the Balogun of the Owu lineage, who is also the Ekerin Balogun of the Egba clan, long life and strength to continue his service to humanity.”.
