On Tuesday President Muhammadu Buhari has warmly extended felicitations to the former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, who turned 71.
He highlighted the boldness of Oshiomhole in advocating reforms and standing for the welfare of the people.
Buhari congratulated the former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for his loyalty and commitment to development and democracy, championing the cause of workers for eight years as President of the Nigerian Labor Congress (NLC) before joining politics.
This was disclosed in a statement by Femi Adesina, Buhari’s Spokesman.
As Oshiomhole clocks 71, Buhari believes “Nigeria owes the former NLC president a debt of gratitude” for always drawing attention to the plight of workers and fighting to ensure that policies reflect the reality of those on the last rung of the economic and political ladder.
President Buhari prays for the well-being of Oshiomole and his family.
