Obasanjo (OBJ) 75th Birthday Anniversary


President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated former president Olusegun Obasanjo, as he clocks 75, saying it was a historic milestone. He commended Obasanjo’s dedication and patriotism to serving his fatherland as well as his historic role in ending the civil war.

 Jonathan further said the former president’s two terms as a democratically elected president helped consolidate democracy in Nigeria. In the letter to Obasanjo, the president said: “On the historic occasion of your 75th birthday anniversary which comes up on Monday, March 5, 2012, I join you, your family, friends and well-wishers to thank

 Almighty God for the life of fulfillment and uncommon accomplishment which He has blessed you with.
 “You have spent virtually all of your adult life in dedicated patriotic service to our fatherland: as an accomplished officer in our nation’s army; as a military commander who played a historic role in effecting the end of the unfortunate civil war; as a military head of state who ushered in civil democratic governance; and later serving two terms as a democratically elected president, and helping to consolidate the democratic process in our country.

 “Today, you are the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the ruling, and by far the largest political party in Nigeria. Through it all, you have demonstrated exceptional courage, steadfast commitment and abiding faith in the unity, peace, stability and prosperity of the Nigerian nation. It is gratifying to note that you stand ready to continue to avail us of your wise counsel at all times.

 “On behalf of my family, the government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I congratulate you on this milestone and wish you many more years of fulfillment. Happy Birthday!”
