President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with the National Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Party, Sen. Osita Izunaso, on his 50th birthday. The President, in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, congratulated Izunaso as he clocks 50 on Oct. 30.
President Buhari joined family, friends and well-wishers in celebrating the “life of the accomplished journalist, politician and philanthropist, who has used his God-given abilities and resources for the benefit of humanity’’. He saluted the exemplary lifestyle and conduct of Izunaso who “at the golden age of 50 has creditably demonstrated great leadership skills with towering records as a former distinguished lawmaker and current APC chieftain’’.
President Buhari noted that Izunaso’s commitment to providing care and support to Persons Living with Disability through his Kpakpando Foundation and the decision to celebrate his golden jubilee with the less privileged was worthy of emulation by all, particularly young and aspiring leaders. He prayed that the almighty God would grant Izunaso more years of good health, wisdom and diligence in the service of the nation and humanity.
