Former President Goodluck Jonathan has felicitated with ex-head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar, on the occasion of his 77th birthday.
In a goodwill message he personally signed, Jonathan described Abdulsalami as a promoter of peace and national cohesion.
The former president also highlighted Adulsalami’s role in midwifing the Fourth Republic, describing it as a testament to his patriotism and selflessness.
The message read: “As a statesman, you have dedicated your life to promoting peace and national cohesion not just in Nigeria but across Africa.
“Your role in the military-to-civilian transition, as a head of state between 1998 and 1999, which birthed the Fourth Democratic Republic in Nigeria, is a testament to your patriotism to our country.
“Through your selfless service, you have deepened the conversation for national rebirth by leading the crusade for a peaceful nation.
I pray that Allah grants you your heart desires and may you enjoy more glorious years of peace, health, and joy as you celebrate.”
