President Muhammadu Buhari has extolled Chief Bisi Akande, the pioneer chairman of the All Progressives Congress for upholding the philosophy of the great nationalist, former premier of Western region and leader of Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

Awolowo advocated free education, health care and entrepreneurship in his lifetime. Buhari noted Akande, who was a former governor of Osun state has been counselling leaders to follow the same path.

Buhari’s praise for Akande was contained in his congratulatory message as Akande marks his 81st birthday today.

Buhari sent warm felicitations to the octogenarian, wishing him longer years, good health and more strength to keep serving the nation.

The President joined all members of the governing party, government and people of Osun State, family and associates of the elder statesmen in celebrating the virtues of selflessness and sacrifice he consistently projects.

The President said he believes Chief Akande’s rich experience in public service and politics will go a long way in moving the nation forward through wise counsels, and setting a good precedence in leadership.

President Buhari prayed for better days ahead for the party stalwart.

Akande was born on January 16, 1939 at Ila-Orangun.
