President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with one of his Special Advisers, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, as he marks his 60th birthday anniversary today.
The President, in a congratulatory message yesterday by his Media Adviser, Femi Adesina, congratulated the renowned journalist for his strong sense of patriotism, loyalty and sacrifice in moving the nation forward.
He joined members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Nigerian Union of Journalists and Nigerian Guild of Editors to celebrate with Ojudu, whose antecedents as a journalist continue to inspire, using his prowess and skills to fight for democracy and good governance for many years.
President Buhari believed the renowned journalist’s courage and forthrightness saw his transition into politics in 2010, and that his contributions to the legislature and the executive have been most outstanding as he brings his wealth of experience and network to support the country.
The President affirmed that the Senator’s bottom-up approach to issues and strong relationship with the grassroots always make a difference in his contributions to national issues.
He, therefore, prayed that the Almighty God will bless Ojudu with longer life and good health.
