*Former President Olusegun Obasanjo

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  has paid tributes to former president of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on the occasion of his 84 birth day.

In congratulating the former president for attaining the old age, the PDP says that it extols President Obasanjo’s undying sense of patriotism and love for Nigeria nation for which he has remained fearlessly active in his counsels, directions, admonitions and firm stance against injustice and impunity in the polity, adding that it urges leaders, across board, to emulate his all-inclusiveness and commitment to the nation.

The PDP describes  Obasanjo as a patriotic leader, global figure and exceptionally energetic administrator, who has made  immeasurable contributions, both as a military leader and as

democratically elected President, for the survival, unity, stability and development of our dear nation.

The party says that “as a military leader, Chief Obasanjo fought for the unity of our dear

nation during her turbulent hours as well as making immense personal sacrifices for the return of democratic rule with the birthing of the Second Republic in 1979”.

“Twenty years after, as a democratically elected President, on the  platform of our great party, the PDP, Chief Obasanjo further united our  nation with the entrenchment of democratic values of all-inclusiveness, rule of law, respect for the constitution, regard for the sensibilities of Nigerians as a people, transparency in governance and establishment of various institutions for good governance in all critical sectors of national life”. The PDP stated  in a press statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondinyan.

The statement continues: “Nigerians celebrate President Obasanjo for running a visionary

administration, leading to the revamping of our productive sectors, settling of our foreign debts, turning our nation into an international investment destination and elevating her from a pariah and debtor nation to becoming one of the fastest growing economies of the world under his


“Under the Obasanjo-led PDP administration, our nation witnessed most of its best days as Nigerians particularly in the private sector, thrived  in all fields, including telecommunication, aviation, banking and finance, education, manufacturing, sports, entertainment, real estate,

healthcare both at home and in the international arena”.

The therefore party prays that God will grant Obasanjo many more years in good health for the benefit of our nation and humanity at large.
