The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in congratulating former president Olusegun Obasanjo on the celebration of his 75th birthday has lauded his achievements.
“For a man whom destiny has twice enthroned to lead the nation at challenging times and twice, [this has] left no guesses as to his commitment and competence; leaving legacies that will outlive him, the nation owes a lot to his conscience, foresight and undiluted belief in the unity and oneness of our dear nation.”
In the press statement released to the media in Abuja and signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Rufai Ahmed Alkali, the party said that Seventy–Five years in the life of any man is significant.
“For Mr. Obasanjo, a man who for the better part of the last Seventy- Five years demonstrated uncommon leadership in service to Nigeria, Africa and the World, the significance of these years of fearless patriotism beckons on the psyche of all Nigerians and that of those that wish her well,” Mr. Alkali said.
The statement also says the Party joins millions of other Nigerians and friends of Nigeria in wishing him good health and many more years to enable the nation continue to benefit from his wealth of experience.
