President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the first Interim Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Osun State, Chief Adebisi Akande, on his 80th birthday.
Buhari, in a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, extolled Akande’s loyalty and faithfulness to the party and the cause of building a strong and unified nation, as he consistently challenges governments and leaders to higher ideals, and reminds them to think out of the box in meeting the needs of the poor and vulnerable.
Also, Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has felicitated with Akande, describing him as a living legend and perfect example of talent and hard work.
Fayemi, in a personally-signed congratulatory letter to Akande, said he considered it a great privilege to work and walk with the former APC Interim National Chairman, whom he described as a man of integrity.
He described Akande as a pride and leading light of the progressive school of thought “a true, committed, passionate and loyal Awoist deserving of all admiration.”
