Senate President Ahmad Lawan, former Senate President David Mark and the senator representing Ogun West, Tolulope Odebiyi, have sent greetings to former President Olusegun Obasanjo on his 85th birthday.

In a statement by his media adviser, Ola Awoniyi, Lawan said: “I heartily felicitate with former President Obasanjo as he continues his strong march in his remarkable journey of life.

“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. He 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.”

Mark, through his media aide, Paul Mumeh, described Obasanjo as a patriotic African leader who is passionate about the peace, unity and development of the continent.

He added: “Both as a military Head-of-State and as civilian President, Obasanjo left no one in doubt about his political will to uphold the sanctity of our unity as one indivisible Nigeria. His indomitable spirit is inspiring and reassuring. His kind is what we need to make the nation peaceful, united and to uphold our bond of brotherhood.”

Odebiyi, on his part, said: “Over the years, you have been a revered and outstanding leader of men and a role model to many. Your untainted contributions to democratic stability and growth of the country are worthy of note. Your wealth of wisdom and indomitable spirit has truly inspired us. You are indeed a role model to the future generations. You are also a completely detribalised man and a great achiever.”
