‘Happy Birthday Daddy’- Peter Obi greets Afenifere leader



Dr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has congratulated Chief Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of Afenifere, as he clocks 95.

The former governor of Anambra said he admired and respected the elder statesman’s courage in speaking up against bad governance and flawed public policies.

He stated this in a series of tweets he personally signed on his Twitter page on Monday.

According to him, Adebanjo’s place in the history of Nigeria is secure.

His tweet read, “On behalf of my family, I wish a very respected father figure, Afenifere leader and elder statesman, Chief PA Ayo Adebanjo a very hearty happy birthday.

“Daddy, you have remained a resounding and consistent voice in preaching for a better and egalitarian Nigeria. I admire and respect above all, your courage in speaking up on bad governance and flawed public policies. Your patriotic fervour is exemplary.

“As you clock 95 years today, I thank God for the gift of your life to our nation and humanity. Your place in the annals of Nigeria’s history is secure. May God protect and bless you always with abundant health and happiness.
