President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Olufemi Gbajabiamila, on his 58th birthday.
President Buhari joined family members to celebrate his years of outstanding leadership, inspired by his personal attributes of courage, humility and loyalty.
He felicitates with the 9th National Assembly, friends and political associates of the lawmaker, who was elected to the House of Representatives in 2003, and has steadily expanded his profile and influence across the country by always placing the interest of the people, and the nation, above all else, particularly on issues of health, education and infrastructure.
President Buhari extols the Speaker ‘for the maturity in the Lower Chamber in tackling national issues, and the speed in passing bills that directly affect the livelihood of Nigerians, appreciating his support in handling the affairs of the country, and the governing political party, All Progressives Congress.’
As the political leader turns 58, the President believes ”his years of experience working as a lawyer within, and outside the country, had been brought to bear on the leadership of the legislature, commending him for the sacrifices of time and resources.”
President Buhari prays that the Almighty God will continue to uphold the Speaker and his family in favour, granting him good health, strength and more wisdom to serve the country.
