Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has felicitated with former President Goodluck Jonathan on the occasion of his 64th birthday.
In a message personally signed by him, Senator Omo-Agege described President Jonathan as a statesman who is unshakably committed to promoting peace and upholding the unity of Nigeria in particular and Africa as a whole.
Senator Omo-Agege applauded his contributions to national development and his unalloyed dedication to nation building, adding that, more than ever before, Nigeria needs the contribution of great patriots.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Adviser, Media and Publicity to the Deputy President of the Senate, Yomi Odunuga made available to Sundiata Post in Abuja.
According to the Deputy President of the Senate, Jonathan’s peaceful disposition and being the first Nigerian President to concede defeat to an opposition candidate place him on a pedestal that is worthy of emulation by all Nigerians.
“By being the first President in Nigeria to concede defeat, you have written your name in gold. Without a doubt, you have shown that nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian. This is a lesson all politicians and their followers must draw from.
“As you celebrate your 64th birthday, my constituents and I join your polical associates, family, friends and all your admirers in wishing you many more fulfilling years ahead,” the Delta Central lawmaker stated.
