Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has congratulated ex-Military Head of State, General, Abdulsalami Abubakar, on his 76th birthday, today.
Jonathan described Abubakar as a great patriot, and a man of peace, who spearheaded the shortest but most successful transition of power, from the Military to a Democratically elected civilian.
In his goodwill message, signed by his Spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, Jonathan disclosed that Nigeria owes Abubakar a debt of gratitude.
He said: “May you be blessed, because just as the Muslim Ummah celebrates the end of Ramadan, Nigeria celebrates you, for ending Military rule.
“On this very special Anniversary, I join you, your family, well-wishers, and millions of other Nigerians, to give thanks to Almighty God for a life of great achievements and inspiring service to humanity.
“Your exemplary patriotism and deep commitment to the development and unity of our nation, is evident in your enduring legacies, having served Nigeria as a brave Soldier and Head of State; who heeded the call to national duty at a time of distress, and helped navigate our dear nation to the democracy, which it now enjoys.
“I wish you good health and more productive years, so that our great country will continue to benefit from your wisdom and wealth of experience.”
