President Muhammadu Buhari has rejoiced with the immediate past governor of Oyo State, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, on his 70th birthday.
A statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said the president joined his family, friends and associates in celebrating the milestone.
President Buhari congratulated the former governor for “many years of outstanding achievements in both the private and public sectors, leaving behind a legacy of excellence in places he served, especially at the helm of affairs in insurance and oil sector companies.”
The President expressed his belief that Ajimobi’s “forthrightness, patriotism and passion in working for the good of the country and humanity will continue to stand him out as a resourceful manager, exemplary leader and patriot while commending his contributions as a senator and governor.”
President Buhari urged the former governor to remain steadfast in love and loyalty to Nigeria, and use his wealth of knowledge, wisdom and experience to contribute to the development, especially by mentoring young leaders as he turns 70.
