Senate President, Lawan greets Obasanjo at 85

President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, on Sunday, joined millions of others around the world to felicitate with former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the occasion of his 85th birthday.

Lawan in a statement described Obasanjo as an elder statesman, who is an accomplished African, but still continues his strong march in his remarkable journey of life.

“President Obasanjo is a true Nigerian patriot, pan-Africanist and global figure who has made great contributions to the political development of Nigeria and the emancipation of Africa.

“President Obasanjo is a consistent protagonist of the Nigerian project. Even now as an elder statesman, he has continued to push for Nigeria to realise her huge potentials as a great nation.

“This is to be expected, as his name is linked to some of the greatest events and developments in the Nigerian history.

“I therefore heartily join Nigerians across the country in celebrating this unique figure as he crosses the milestone of 85 years.

“I also congratulate him on the divine blessing of attaining the milestone in good health of body and mind, and wish him many more years of continued service to his beloved Nigeria and Africa, and to the cause of peace all over the world,” Lawan said.
