Nigeria’s Number 1 citizen President Muhammadu Buhari, has joined all members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in celebrating the party’s National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on his 67th birthday.
According to Buhari, the former Edo State Governor has provided purposeful, courageous and tenacious leadership over the years.
The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, earlier today in the country’s capital, insisted that after many years of serving as a labour leader, Mr Adams has brought a new dynamism into the collective effort to make democracy and development more inclusive in the country.
Buhari lauded Oshiomhole for his superb relationship with Nigerian workers and ordinary citizens. The President also affirmed that APC’s success in the last elections clearly showed how visionary and vibrant Oshiomhole is.
The President also hailed the APC chairman’s effort at molding a strong and unified party that is aimed at strengthening internal democracy and developing the country.
While rejoicing with family members, friends and political associates of the former Labour comrade, Buhari said Adams is “a man of conviction, who stands resolutely by whatever he believes in”, and he also prayed that God would grant the party chairman longer life, good health and wisdom in serving the country and its citizens.
