APC celebrates Obasanjo at 81
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR, the former president and military Head of State, Federal Republic of Nigeria on his 81st birthday.
Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, in a statement, described Obasanjo as a bastion of democracy, good governance and development in Nigeria and beyond.
He pointed out that Obasanjo inspired a generation of Nigerians notably in the area of entrepreneurship, leadership and education, especially through his non-profit initiatives, the Africa Leadership Forum (ALF) and the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library.
“His legacy as President has continued to inspire good governance on the continent even after so many years and he remains an influential voice in different facets of our national life. As a true Nigerian patriot and statesman, Chief Obasanjo has over the years built solid bridges across political divides in the country, on the African continent and the world at large,” he stated.
Abdullahi, however, prayed that Chief Obasanjo continues to age in health and wisdom as he contributes to the unending task of nation building.
