President Muhammadu has described former President Goodluck Jonathan’s service to Nigeria as bringing honour and goodwill to the country.
The president was congratulating Jonathan on his 63rd birthday in a statement signed by Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
The statement read, “On behalf of the Federal Government and Nigerians in general, President Muhammadu Buhari warmly felicitates with former President Goodluck Jonathan on his 63rd birthday, November 20, 2020, congratulating him for a life of service that has brought honour and goodwill to the country.
“The President notes, with appreciation, the peculiar and remarkable climb of the former president on Nigeria’s political ladder, and dedication that has kept him working most recently as ECOWAS envoy to bring peace to the Republic of Mali.”
Adesina said, as the former Nigerian President turns 63, “President Buhari prays that the Almighty God will grant Dr Jonathan longer life, good health and more wisdom to keep serving the nation and humanity.”
