Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has hailed Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, GCON, as he clocks 73 today.
In a recent statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olisa Ifejika, in Asaba, Okowa described Atiku as a man of strong convictions.
According to him, Atiku’s drive and tenacity to lead Nigeria will come to pass someday.
He hailed Abubakar’s remarkable contributions to job creation via his several investments.
His words, “That our democracy is firmly rooted today, is because you fought anti-democratic forces that tried to undermine our democracy at some point in our democratic journey.
“Over the years, you have continued to provide and offer leadership at various strata of the society.
“I urge you to continue to serve Nigeria well without relenting because one day your quest to lead this nation will become a reality.
“One of the major challenges we are facing as a nation is lack of jobs for our teeming graduates and I must thank you specifically for the numerous job opportunities you provided.
“This will continue to provide for our people to utilise their potential and earn a decent means of livelihood.
“Over the years, you maintained a large, devoted and loyal followership and bestrode Nigeria’s political scene like a colossus due to your famed generosity and large-heartedness,”
On behalf of the government and people of Delta, I write to congratulate you on the occasion of your 73rd birth anniversary.
“In the past 73 years, your family and political and business associates have cause to be grateful to God for having granted you a life of great accomplishments and abiding fulfilment.”
