President Bola Tinubu, on Sunday, felicitated with former President Goodluck Jonathan, on his 66th birthday, saying his wisdom, foresight and patriotism continue to inspire leaders aiming to make a difference in Nigeria and beyond.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, conveyed Tinubu’s birthday message to Jonathan in a statement he signed on Sunday titled ‘President Tinubu celebrates icon of democracy, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, at 66.’

The President celebrates Jonathan, “for his unique demonstration of statesmanship and distinguishing achievement as a leader, who gave Nigeria and Africa a pride of place in democratic lore by upending the vitiating paradigm of those who seek to hold onto power by all means,” Ngelale revealed.

He stated: “President Tinubu shares the joyous occasion with one of our icons of democracy, whose humility continues to inspire hope for good governance in the country and on the continent.”

Tinubu believes the former President possesses a distinguished profile on leadership, rising up the ladder as Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice-President and President, and now championing the cause of peace in Africa by bringing together and counselling leaders on harmonious co-existence for the benefit of the people they serve.

Therefore, he commended former President Jonathan for committing himself to the service of humanity and to strengthening democratic institutions, exemplified by his relentless peace missions and advocacy of non-violence in the peaceful transition of power across the African continent.

As the former President clocks 66, President Tinubu prays that God Almighty will continually sustain the former President and his wife, Patience, in good health and strength.
