President Muhammadu Buhari has sent warm greetings to Alhaji Bashir Mohammed Dalhatu, Wazirin Dutse, on his 70th birthday, congratulating him for many years of serving in the public and private sector, with an exceptional attitude of always delivering excellent results.
In a statement made available to newsmen by his spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari joined the Dutse Emirate Council, family, friends and professional colleagues of the reputable legal practitioner, who served the country as Minister of Internal Affairs, Minister of Power and Steel and Secretary for Transport and Aviation, in celebrating the land mark age.
