‘Your Legacy Of Patriotism Will Continue To Inspire Generations’– Buhari Hails Jonathan At 62
President Muhammadu Buhari has described Goodluck Jonathan, his predecessor, who clocked 62 on Wednesday, as a leader whose legacy of patriotism will continue to inspire generations.
In a congratulatory message signed by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, Buhari lauded Jonathan for his good counsel to leaders in Nigeria and around the world since he left office.
“President Muhammadu Buhari felicitates with former President Goodluck Jonathan on his 62nd birthday, joining the nation in praying for longer life, good health and more strength to keep serving the nation,” the statement read.
“President Buhari rejoices with family, friends and political associates of the former president, lauding him for good counsel to leaders within and outside Nigeria since he left office, sharing his experience of serving at different levels of governance.
“President Buhari believes the former President’s legacy of humility and patriotism will continue to resonate, inspiring generations to come on the sacrifices made for the stability of democracy and promotion of sustainable development.
