The former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has congratulated former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, on the occasion of his 60th birthday today, Monday, November 20, 2017.

Rejoicing with Dr. Jonathan, Obi said in a statement by his Media Office that the former President “would forever be remembered for the part he played in deepening democracy in Africa, when he, against the trend, handed over power to his main challenger who was declared winner of the 2015 presidential election.”

Obi said that Jonathan would remain a reference point in Africa and ought to be celebrated for that singular demonstration of abiding faith in democracy.

The former Governor also mourned the death of former Vice President of Nigeria, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, describing it as a huge loss to humanity.

Obi, who said that the country cherished Ekwueme’s fatherly advice while he was alive, added that he would be missed not only by his immediate family, but by Anambra State and the country as a whole.

He prayed for the happy repose of Ekwueme’s soul and for those he left behind to carry on with his politics focused on service at all times.
