“What We Have Learnt From Others Becomes Our Own Reflection “~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Let me on behalf of my family felicitate with you Our dear Leader and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress as you clock 68th years of age.

Working with you for 8 years afforded me the opportunity to learn a lot of lessons which in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson have now become my personal reflections.

At 68, you have bestrode the political landscape of our great country like a collossus contributing positively in every way to it’s development.

At a time like this when the world, nay, our country Nigeria is experiencing an unprecedented level of health and medical challenges with it’s attendant impact on the social, economic and political lives of the citizenry, I wish to join others to pray God to protect you , your family, all the leaders and peoples of our Country, Nigeria.

Over the years, you have given so much of yourself that others may borrow from and put to good use in the service of others.

You have always been a leader that we in Edo State remain proud and grateful to.You have set the template in purposeful leadership, even as your commitment to our dear country, Nigeria, is a testament to patriotism.

We pray to Almighty God to grant you more fruitful years ahead, give you strength and keep you in excellent health, as you join in the fight for the salvation of our fatherland.

Once again I wish you a Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns of the day.May your new year be blessed.

His Excellency,
Rt. Hon. Dr.Pius Egberanmwen Odubu
Former Deputy Governor.
Edo State.
