Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has described Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as a great patriot, democrat and man of faith for his legendary and remarkable contributions to the growth of democracy in Nigeria.

Okowa poured the encomium on the ex-Vice President as he turns 72 years today, Sunday, November 25, 2018.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, in Asaba on Saturday, the Governor lauded Atiku’s strong faith, dexterity, sagacity, courage and penchant for democratic values and ethos as an unrepentant democrat, when he fought numerous political and legal battles to advance the cause of democracy in Nigeria.

He commended the former Vice President for his tremendous impact on the lives of people irrespective of tribe, religion, geography, gender, social status or political affiliation, adding “Your altruistic nature has genuinely led you to provide opportunities for people to utilise their potentials and earn a decent means of livelihood without expecting anything in return.

“Your massive investments in education, agriculture, media, hospitality, water, oil and gas, in your home state of Adamawa, and other parts of the country stands you out indisputably as the highest employer of labour besides government.”

Okowa added: “Over the years, you maintained a large, devoted and loyal followership and bestrode Nigeria’s political scene like a colossus due to your famed generosity and large-heartedness and we are convinced that you will get Nigeria working again.

“On behalf of the government and people of Delta State, I write to felicitate with you on the occasion of your 72nd birthday anniversary. In the past 72 years, your family and indeed your political and business associates as well as admirers do have cause to be grateful to Almighty God for having granted you a life of great accomplishment and abiding fulfillment.”

Governor Okowa wished Atiku Abubakar a very happy and memorable 72nd birthday celebrations.
