Buhari made the remark today to his predecessor, who was born 62 years ago in Otuoke, Bayelsa State, in a special birthday letter. In the message signed by special media advisor, Femi Adesina said Buhari joined the country in praying for Jonathan’s longer life, good health, and greater strength to allow him to continue serving the nation.
President Buhari was happy with the former president’s family, friends and political associates. He also thanked him for good advice to leaders inside and outside Nigeria after he left office and shared his experience of serving at various levels of governance.
President Buhari claimed that the modesty of Jonathan would encourage generations to come to the sacrifices made for political stability and the promotion of sustainable development.
