President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on the occasion of his 69th birthday.
The president’s congratulatory message is contained in a statement by one of his spokesmen, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Sunday.
Buhari joined family, friends and well-wishers around the country to celebrate the former Governor of Edo, thanking God for a life of service to the nation, good health and opportunity to commemorate this special day.
The president urged Oshiomhole, as he looks forward to joining the club of septuagenarians, to rededicate his life to working for the prosperity of those in need.
He also enjoined him to build bridges among people of diverse backgrounds and faith; and inspiring others to be patriotic, eschewing politics of division and acrimony.
Buhari also recognised the immense contributions the former national chairman had made to the nation, wishing ”the people’s comrade more years of service to build a better country.”
