Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his 80th birthday, describing him as a worthy Statesman and iconic leader whose impact would remain indelible in the memories of Nigerians.

The Governor in a statement by his Special Adviser, Media, Yinka Oyebode, joined other well-meaning Nigerians to celebrate President Buhari whom he described as an uncommon leader who has been serving the country from his youthful age to his old age without any blemish.

According to him, President Buhari is a worthy statesman, an accommodating leader, a selfless patriot and a leader who is humble enough to accept criticisms and ever ready to accommodate all shades of opinion.

The Ekiti Governor noted that the emergence of President Buhari as the nation’s helmsman was a defining moment in the political history of Nigeria as it marked the first time an opposition leader would defeat an incumbent President, adding that winning another term in office was a testament to Nigerians’ trust in his capacity and competence.

He also noted that President Buhari has worked hard to manage a complex and a heterogeneous country like Nigeria and has shown in his words and actions that he is still irrevocably committed to its unity and indivisibility.

Oyebanji added that President Buhari has etched his name in the annals of the country for his legacies in infrastructure, social and economic reforms and for superintending over a cleaner and more credible electoral process in which the votes of the electorate count.

The Governor prayed God to grant the President longer life, sound health and success in all his future endeavors noting that the nation would still need his counsel by the time he would have gracefully exited the Presidency on May 29, 2023.

“On behalf of my family, the Government and good people of Ekiti State, we wish our leader and father of the nation a happy 80th birthday and pray that the Lord continue to strengthen him and increase his peace and joy.” He prayed
