Happy Birthday: Former President, Obasanjo Turns 79 Years Old Tomorrow






President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a congratulatory message to former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo (GCFR), as he turns 79 years old on March 5, 2016.
The President affirmed that the former president, who is approaching the octogenarian cycle, has contributed immensely to the institutionalization of democracy in Nigeria and Africa through his personal sacrifice, extensive local and international networks, and God-given wisdom.
According to his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, the President 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% 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 for which generations will remain grateful,” he said.
President Buhari prayed 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. 
Here, we are wishing 'Baba Iyabo' as he is fondly called a Happy Birthday          -(Source: Channelstv)
