Jonathan congratulates Obasanjo on his 75th birthday

President Goodluck Jonathan has written to congratulate former President Olusegun Obasanjo on his 75th birthday anniversary. In the letter  Jonathan said “I join you, your family, friends and well-wishers to thank Almighty God for the life of fulfillment and uncommon accomplishment which He has blessed you with.

“You have spent virtually all of your adult life in dedicated patriotic service to our fatherland: as an accomplished officer in our nation’s army; as a military commander who played a historic role in effecting the end of the unfortunate civil war; as a military Head of State who ushered in civil democratic governance; and later serving two terms as a democratically elected President, and helping to consolidate the democratic process in our country. Today you are the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the ruling, and by far the largest political party in Nigeria.

According to Jonathan “Through it all, you have demonstrated exceptional courage, steadfast commitment and abiding faith in the unity, peace, stability and prosperity of the Nigerian nation. It is gratifying to note that you stand ready to continue to avail us of your wise counsel at all times.
