President Muhammadu Buhari has joined family members and friends in celebrating with Nigeria’s former High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Christopher Kolade, on his 89th birthday.

In a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President celebrated the diplomat and academic, “whose integrity, intelligence and experience have been placed many times at the service of the nation, leaving footprints of excellence and bringing glory to the country wherever he served.”

Buhari noted the contributions of the veteran broadcaster in both the private and public sectors, working variously as Director General of Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation, Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Cadbury Nigeria Limited and lecturer at the Lagos Business School.

The President wished the Octogenarian good health, as he keeps sharing his wealth of knowledge.
