While applauding him for using his positions to add value to his immediate environment and people, he tasked the youth to emulate him.
“Your antecedents are clear attestations to my belief that you still have a lot to offer our state Delta and our country Nigeria.
“I heartily felicitate with you, your family and join your friends, associates and innumerable admirers to celebrate with you on your birthday and wish you good health and greater prosperity in the years ahead,” Omo-Agege said.
