President Muhammadu Buhari warmly congratulates eminent academic and former federal minister, Prof. Tamunoemi Sokari David-West as he turns 80 years on August 26, 2016.
On this special birthday anniversary, President Buhari recalls, with fond memories, his long term relationship with the elder statesman, when he served as Minister of Petroleum between 1984 and 1985.
The President commends Prof. David-West’s steadfastness and forthrightness on issues of good governance, democracy, human rights and the unity of Nigeria, especially when some seem to easily give up on the project of building one great nation.
President Buhari assures the octogenarian that his place in Nigeria’s history is guaranteed for the statesmanship, fearlessness, intellectual depth, resourcefulness and versatility that he brought into public discourse.
The President prays that the almighty God will continue to grant the former minister good health and more fruitful years of service to his fatherland.
Special Adviser to the President
