President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with journalist and author, Kunle Ajibade, on his 60th birthday, May 28.

According to a statement by his spokesperson, Mr Buhari “joins the media industry in specially celebrating the renowned author of ‘Jailed for Life’ and ‘What a Country!’ for his literary prowess and contributions to topical issues in the country over the years.”

“The president recalls the many hurdles Ajibade had to overcome, and the sacrifices he made in the pursuit of seeing fairness and justice institutionalised in the country, including going to jail for trumped up reasons.”

“The President prays that the almighty God will grant the author longer life, good health and more wisdom to serve the nation he loves so much.”
