President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated former President Goodluck Jonathan as he clocks 63 years of age.

Buhari’s message to the former President was contained in a statement on Thursday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina.

He praised his immediate predecessor for leading “a life of service that has brought honour and goodwill to the country.”

“On behalf of the Federal Government and Nigerians in general, President Buhari warmly felicitates with former President Jonathan on his 63rd birthday on November 20, 2020, congratulating him for a life of service that has brought honour and goodwill to the country,” the statement partly read.

“The President notes, with appreciation, the peculiar and remarkable climb of the former President on Nigeria’s political ladder, and dedication that has kept him working most recently as ECOWAS Envoy to bring peace to the Republic of Mali.

“As the former Nigerian President turns 63, President Buhari prays that the Almighty God will grant Dr Jonathan longer life, good health and more wisdom to keep serving the nation and humanity,” it added.
