The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his 80th birthday and said that he has never been proven to be corrupt.
In a statement released on Friday by his chief press secretary, Gboyega Akosile, Sanwo-Olu claimed that President Buhari has become a role model for many Nigerians due to his spotless performance in public office.
“President Buhari to date remains one of the most respected and honest world leaders, who is never found to be corrupt despite the juicy positions he has held in the military and other public offices at state, regional, national and international levels in the last 50 years,” Sanwo-Olu stated.
Buhari an epitome of honest and transparent leadership
The governor praised Buhari for his sincere and open leadership of the nation, saying that since taking office on May 29, 2015, the President has shown unmatched patriotism, integrity, honesty, and courage in the mission of guiding Nigeria’s ship in the correct path.
He also commended the President for keeping his word to Nigerians, particularly in the fight against corruption, militancy, and the development of infrastructure across the nation.
Buhari, according to Sanwo-Olu, is one of the few Nigerian presidents who has made a significant contribution to the country’s growth and development, particularly in the Armed Forces, politics, and government.
“On behalf of my family, the government, the people of Lagos State and the entire members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), I congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of his 80th birthday.
“President Buhari has sacrificed the greater part of his life in service of our dear country, Nigeria. He is the epitome of honesty, dedication and service and he has used his elevated positions at various times for the betterment of the Nigerian people.
“As President Buhari celebrates his 80th birthday, it is our prayer that God will grant him more prosperous years in good health and wisdom as he continues to serve our dear nation. Happy Birthday to our dear President, the latest entrant in the Octogenarian Club.”
