SENATE President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Senator Ike Ekweremadu yesterday extolled the virtues of the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on his 60th birthday. Saraki in a statement, signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja, also wished Osinbajo good health, great wisdom and enduring grace to serve the nation and humanity. “On behalf of all members of the 8th Senate of the Federal Republic, I wish our Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, a happy birthday as he turns 60 today, Wednesday, March 8, 2017,” Saraki said.
He added: “We pray to Almighty God to continue to give you good health, great wisdom and enduring grace to serve the nation, in particular and humanity in general, for many more years.” Also, the deputy Senate President extolled the leadership qualities and achievements of Osinbajo, describing him as an erudite scholar with humble dispositions and commended his handling of the nation’s affairs so far as Acting President. Ekweremadu said: “I congratulate Prof. Osibanjo on this landmark birthday and commend him for the leadership qualities exhibited as Nigeria’s Vice President and so far as the Acting President.
“As I have always emphasised, the challenges faced by the Nigerian masses are virtually the same and, as leaders, we must live up to their yearnings, inspiring and giving them a sense of direction and belonging. “We must acclaim our leaders when they are doing well, as well as call them to order when they are derailing, irrespective of political affiliation. “I, therefore, commend the Acting President for his peace shuttles across the country and unrelenting efforts at resuscitating the troubled economy and rebuilding the badly fractured bridges that connect us as a people.” The Deputy Senate President wished him a happy birthday and the grace to continue on the path of success.
