“President Obasanjo is a true Nigerian patriot, pan-Africanist and global figure who has made great contributions to the political development of Nigeria and the emancipation of Africa.
“President Obasanjo is a consistent protagonist of the Nigerian project. Even now as an elder statesman, he has continued to push for Nigeria to realise her huge potentials as a great nation.
“This is to be expected, as his name is linked to some of the greatest events and developments in the Nigerian history.
“I therefore heartily join Nigerians across the country in celebrating this unique figure as he crosses the milestone of 85 years.
