Former president Goodluck Jonathan has sent a goodwill message to his successor, Muhammadu Buhari as he clocked 76 years on Monday.
While thanking God for giving the president the grace of long life, Jonathan noted that Buhari has contributed so much to the development of Nigeria, having served the nation in different capacities, and always giving his best whenever he is called upon to serve.
“Yours has been a life of great service to our dear nation, having served as a brave soldier, Governor, Minister of Petroleum, Head of State, and now President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
“I join you, your family, well-wishers and fellow Nigerians to give thanks to Almighty God for the gift of a long life.
“I wish you good health and more productive years, as you continue to lend your skills and energy to the task of building a Nigeria of our dreams.” He said on Sunday.
