On this, your 57th Birthday, I will like to join other patriots and well-wishers around Nigeria, to congratulate you. I’ve had more than two decades to know the incredible human being that you are. I have never ceased to marvel at your humane qualities, your unaffected kindness, your ability to relate with people from all backgrounds and stations, and your commitment to the very best interest of Nigeria and it’s peoples.
Allah has given you the intellect and emotional maturity which real leadership entail. More than most, I’ve been privileged, to watch the ways that your various qualities have come together, to define you, and the place you occupy in our lives today in Nigeria.
Your Excellency, Kashim Shettima, GCON, Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, may the Almighty Allah give you many more years of committed labour in the service of our dear country, Nigeria, in good health, happiness and peace. Happy Birthday!!!
