The statement reads:

“Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is an icon of democracy and one of those who struggled to enthrone democratic governance in Nigeria.”

“We celebrate him as one of the greatest political leaders in Nigeria and a role model.

“We commend his unwavering commitment to the wellbeing of the Nigerian people through his philanthropic activities especially in helping thousands of the internally displaced persons in the North East recently.”

“Atiku is one person who even at the height of the insurgency when people were running and closing their businesses he was establishing schools and manufacturing industries to provides jobs for our youths.”

“As he clocks 70 years we wish him God’s continuous guidance, protection and sound health to continue with his invaluable service to the nation and humanity in years come.”

Atiku will turn 70 on Friday, November 24.
