Chief Bisi Akande is “one of the biggest and strongest pillars of democracy in the country,” President Muhammadu Buhari has declared.
Akande is the pioneer chairman of the governing All Progressives Congress, APC.
In a message of congratulation on Akande’s 82 years birthday, the president described the former governor of Osun State as someone committed to “service of the country and welfare of all citizens.”
According to President Buhari, “The party he helped to form and lead as the pioneer chairman has benefitted tremendously, and continues to benefit from his astute leadership, wisdom and strong democratic convictions.”
The president prayed for Akande’s good health and longer life so that the elder statesman would continue to be useful to his fatherland and humanity.
