You have been of great service to Nigeria, Jonathan tells Buhari on 76th birthday
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has extended his felicitations to President Muhammadu Buhari, who clocks 76 on Monday (today).
In a goodwill message he personally signed in Abuja on Sunday, the former President thanked God who, he said, blessed President Buhari with long life.
Jonathan further noted that President Buhari had contributed so much to the development of Nigeria, having served the nation in different capacities, and “always giving his best whenever he is called upon to serve.”
He said, “Yours has been a life of great service to our dear nation, having served as a brave soldier, governor, Minister of Petroleum, Head of State, and now President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Jonathan, who further highlighted Buhari’s patriotism and deep commitment to Nigeria’s development, also prayed to God to grant the President good health and more productive years.”
