Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has rejoiced with the immediate past President Muhammadu Buhari on his 81st birthday.

Sanwo-Olu described Buhari as a leader, who remained consistent in character throughout his public career. 

Governor Sanwo-Olu, in a press statement signed on Sunday, by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, said Buhari provided honest and transparent leadership in Nigeria during his tenure as Head of State from 1983 to 1985 and civilian President for two consecutive terms.

In his congratulatory message, Sanwo-Olu said Buhari’s unblemished record in public service, especially as a Military Governor, Minister of Petroleum Services, Head of State and President, has made him a role model to many Nigerians.   

The Governor described the immediate past President as a courageous and passionate leader, whose commitment to the growth and development of Nigeria is worthy of emulation. 

Sanwo-Olu said: “On behalf of my family, the government and people of Lagos State, I congratulate former President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of his 81 years birthday. He has sacrificed the greater part of his life in service of our dear country as a military officer and public office holder.

“Former President Muhammadu Buhari contributed immensely to Nigeria’s unity, growth and development right from his youthful days till he bowed out of office as President on May 29, 2023, having served Nigeria passionately in different capacities as Minister of Petroleum Resources, Head of State and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. 

“During his tenure as President of Nigeria from 2015 to 2023, ex-President Buhari demonstrated unparalleled leadership skills, patriotism, integrity and courage in steering the ship of Nigeria. 

“Now that he is retired, after serving the country for many years with an unblemished record, I urged the former President to not be tired of contributing to the country. We believe his contribution will remain invaluable as an elder statesman and patriotic leader.
