President Muhammadu Buhari has sent warm felicitations to Chief Abdukareem Adebisi Akande, wishing him longer years, good health and more strength to keep serving the nation.

The felicitation was on the occasion of the 81st birthday of Akande, who is the first Interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The president said he joined all members of the governing party, government and people of Osun State, family and associates of the elder statesmen in celebrating the virtues of selflessness and sacrifice he consistently projected.

President Buhari congratulated the former Governor of Osun State for upholding the philosophy of the great nationalist, former premier of Western region and leader of Unity Party of Nigeria, UPN, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, in advocating free education, health care and entrepreneurship, and following up with counselling of leaders on same path.

The president said he believed Chief Akande’s rich experience in public service and politics would go a long way in moving the nation forward through wise counsels, and setting a good precedence in leadership.

He prayed for better days ahead for the party stalwart.
