President Muhammadu Buhari as felicitated with journalist and author, Kunle Ajibade, on his 60th birthday today
In a statement made available to newsmen yesterday by his Spokesman, Femi Adesina, the President joined the media industry in specially celebrating the renowned author of “Jailed for Life’’ and “What a Country!’’ for his literary prowess and contributions to topical issues in the country over the years.
The President recalled the many hurdles Ajibade had to overcome, and the sacrifices he made in the pursuit of seeing fairness and justice institutionalized in the country, including going to jail for trumped up reasons.
Buhari commended Ajibade’s patriotism, resilience and desire to see Nigeria become a better country.
He prayed that the almighty God will grant the author longer life, good health and more wisdom to serve the nation he loves so much.
