By Lawrence Olaoye

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent warm greetings to former editor, and later member, Board of Directors and Executive Director (Administration) of the Daily Times of Nigeria, Farouk Umar Muhammed
who turned 70, yesterday.
According to a statement made available to news men by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, the President joined the media industry and communication strategists in celebrating the former spokesman of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, his family and friends, while commending his dedication to a profession that has consistently shaped the history of Nigeria, even before independence.
The President congratulated Muhammed’s doggedness as a journalist, penchant for strong and insightful analyses as an editor and consultant for many years, and willingness to serve his state, Kano, as an adviser on many committees, before moving to the national and international levels.
Buhari believed Muhammed has left his footprints indelibly on the sands of time, and commends his diligence and forthrightness to younger generation of media professionals.
The president prayed for longer life, good health and more wisdom for the veteran.
