Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi, has conveyed his warm wishes to Nigeria's former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, on the occasion of his 87th birthday. 

Obi celebrated alongside President Obasanjo at The Chapel of Christ The Glorious King, OOPL, Abeokuta, during a Birthday Thanksgiving Service to kick off the festivities marking the beginning of Obasanjo's 87th birthday. 

In his remarks, Obi lauded Obasanjo as a genuine patriot whose primary goal is the advancement and prosperity of our nation. He expressed his joy in honoring the esteemed Nigerian leader for his significant contributions to the country.

"I was delighted to celebrate with this very revered Nigerian who has contributed immeasurably to the growth of our nation. His love for the nation is very evident in his firm commitment to the unity and peace of our dear nation.

"President Obasanjo remains a true leader who not only engineered so many positive transformations in our nation but left behind a sound economic foundation, which if we have followed, we would not be in the sorry state we are today," Obi said.

Obi eulogised Obasanjo forever remaining active in the collective work of nation-building. He noted that Obasanjo has continued to contribute, by words and actions, to the struggle for good governance in Nigeria.

"With our dear nation, going through very challenging times, occasioned by leadership failure, President Obasanjo has continued to courageously add his voice to demand good governance in the country. He not only speaks, but he takes action to ensure that our nation is saved from further chaos.

"As a father figure, he has continued to inspire and mentor the younger generation in transformational leadership. I am delighted to celebrate him today," Obi enthused in a press release signed by Dr Yunusa Tanko, chief spokesperson of his media organization.

He prayed to God to grant Obasanjo more healthy and fruitful years, as he continues to play his part in the development of the nation, through his immeasurable contributions, while wishing him a happy 87th birthday.
