Abuja-------------- President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Speaker, House of Representatives, Olufemi Gbajabiamila, on his 58th birthday, joining family members to celebrate years of outstanding leadership, inspired by his personal attributes of courage, humility and loyalty.
The President’s congratulatory message was conveyed in a statement signed by his Seniour Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja Thursday.
Buhari felicitated with the 9th National Assembly, friends and political associates of the lawmaker, who was elected to the House of Representatives in 2003.
He noted that Gbajabiamila had steadily expanded his profile and influence across the country by always placing the interest of the people, and the nation, above all else, particularly on issues of health, education and infrastructure.
He also praised the Speaker for the maturity in the Lower Chamber in tackling national issues, and the speed in passing bills that directly affect the livelihood of Nigerians, appreciating his support in handling the affairs of the country, and the governing political party, All Progressives Congress, APC.
President Buhari believed that Gbajabiamila’s years of experience working as a lawyer within, and outside the country, had been brought to bear on the leadership of the legislature and prayed almighty God to continue to uphold the Speaker and his family in favour, granting him good health, strength and more wisdom to serve the country even better.
