As former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, celebrates his Sixty-fourth birthday, the Deputy President of Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, has described him as a symbol of unity, peace and development of Nigeria.
In a goodwill message personally signed by him, Omo-Agege described Jonathan as “a statesman who is unshakably committed to promoting peace and upholding the unity of Nigeria in particular and Africa as a whole.”
According to the Deputy Senate President, Jonathan’s peaceful disposition and being the first Nigerian President to concede defeat to an opposition candidate, place him on a pedestal worthy of emulation by all Nigerians.
“By being the first President in Nigeria to concede defeat, you have written your name in gold. Without a doubt, you have shown that nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian. This is a lesson all politicians and their followers must draw from.
“As you celebrate your 64th birthday, my constituents and I join your political associates, family, friends and all your admirers in wishing you many more fulfilling years ahead,” Omo-Agege stated.
