We pray to Almighty God to continue to give you good health, great wisdom and enduring grace to serve the nation, in particular, and humanity, in general, for many more years,’’ he said.
Similarly, the Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, extolled the Osinbajo on his leadership qualities and achievements.
He described him as an erudite scholar with humble dispositions, and commended his handling of the nation’s affairs as acting president.
“I congratulate Prof. Osibanjo on this landmark birthday and commend him for the leadership qualities exhibited as Nigeria’s Vice President and so far, as Acting President. As I have always emphasised, the challenges faced by Nigerian masses are virtually the same and, as leaders, we must leave up to their yearnings, inspiring and giving them a sense of direction and belonging.
We must acclaim our leaders when they are doing well as well as call them to order when they are derailing, irrespective of political affiliation. I, therefore, commend the acting president for his peace shuttles across the country and unrelenting efforts at resuscitating the troubled economy and rebuilding the badly fractured bridges that connect us as a people,” Ekweremadu said.
Ekweremadu wished the acting president a happy birthday and the grace to continue on the path of success.
Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara has also eulogised Osinbajo, for demonstrating exceptional capacity, humility and patriotism in handling the affairs of state.
Dogara commended the acting president for exhibiting abiding faith and commitment to the ideals of democracy and rule of law.
He noted that since his emergence as the Vice President and chairman of the country’s Economic Council, the acting president had not left any one in doubt in his capacity to handle matters of national interest, development and progress.
He commended Osinbajo’s disposition towards building national peace, unity and stability of Nigeria which he had always manifested while carrying out his duties.
Dogara wished his Excellency a happy birthday celebration, and prayed that God Almighty will continue to keep him in good health.
