President Goodluck yesterday commended Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu on his 72 years birthday today.
Jonathan, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, also commended the entrepreneur for his continued dedication to the service of his people, community and country.
He stated “On behalf of my family, the Government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and on my own behalf, I write to express warm felicitations to you on the occasion of your 72nd birthday anniversary.
“Your family, friends and well-wishers have great cause to celebrate you, considering the distinguished life of dedicated service to humanity which you have lived.
“As you mark this glorious day, I salute you and pray that Almighty God continues to bless you with robust health and many more years of enduring fulfillment,” the President wrote.
President Jonathan also commiserated with Iwuanyanwu on the recent death of his younger brother, Sir Jessen Umunnakwe Iwuanyanwu.
He prayed that God Almighty should grant the entire Iwuanyanwu family the fortitude to cope with the painful loss of Sir Jessen, whom he described as a distinguished servant of God and an accomplished community leader.
