The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila have rejoiced with the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), His Excellency, Adams Oshiomhole, on the auspicious occasion of his 68th birthday.
Lawan congratulated Oshiomhole on his good health despite the intensity of his life of service to Nigeria as a former labour leader, two-term Governor of Edo State and in his current position as the National Chairman of Nigeria’s governing party.
“The life of the former comrade Governor has been that of struggle for the improvement of society, especially of the living conditions of the common Nigerians.
“This is clearly evident in his glittering records as a labour leader, Governor and now as the captain of the ship of our great party, the APC,” Lawan said.
The Senate President described Oshiomhole as “a man with the courage of his convictions, who has been consistent in his principled and dogged pursuit of life more abundant for Nigerians.”
Lawan joined Oshiomhole’s family, friends and political associates in celebrating the indefatigable chairman of APC on this joyous occasion and prayed for continual deepening of his wisdom and renewal of his strength for continued service of his beloved fatherland.
Meanwhile, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has congratulated the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on his 68th birthday.
Gbajabiamila said Oshiomhole’s sterling leadership qualities as the APC National Chairman have contributed tremendously in stabilizing the party since his coming on board in July, 2018.
In a congratulatory message by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker said Oshiomhole has proven to be one committed Nigerian, who continues to work tirelessly in moving the country forward.
Describing the APC National Chairman as a pragmatic leader, the Speaker said: “On this day, I join millions of Nigerians, especially members of our party, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in congratulating and celebrating our National Chairman on his 68th birthday.
“Right from his days as a labour leader to his period as an elected governor of Edo State for eight years, Adams Oshiomhole has proven his mettle as a leader with an uncommon sense of patriotism.
“He has brought his experience of decades and political sagacity to bear in leading the APC to victory during the 2019 general elections. His firm commitment to party supremacy and discipline is a trait that many do not have.
“Oshiomhole is one individual that has weathered the storm in difficult circumstances and has come out stronger. He remains ever determined to ensure the continuous unity and harmony among members of our great party.
“While thanking him for all that he has done for the APC to remain one, I pray that God Almighty will continue giving him the wisdom and energy to pilot the affairs of our party,” Gbajabiamila said.
