I rejoice with my Senior brother, father ,a leader, a true patriot, the author of ‘Doctrine Of Necessity’, a stabilizing voice in our democracy, my mentor, my boss, the longest-serving Politician in Delta State on the occasion of your 65th birthday. Your sterling leadership qualities have provided an essential stabilizing force in the Red Chamber. We, your Sons, and the nation at large admire and respect your wisdom, fairness and dedication to duty.
Your transformation has a parallel with the transformation of Saul to Paul. Your conversion to democracy has been total. “As a Senator you organized your colleagues; as an unprecedented two-term Senator you have not only stabilized the Senate and therefore the polity especially at a critical time you have also given the Senate character. You have become one of the most outstanding figures of our democracy and its symbol of forthrightness and courage.
You are a perpetual lesson in service and we are proud to learn at your feet. At Sixty-five, we thank God for your life; a life of many stories; a life of service to man and to God; a life of fulfillment. We can only pray that the Almighty whom you have so faithfully served grants you many more years in good health so that you continue in your service to your Nation and humanity. Like wine you are only getting better with age. On behalf of my family and the good people of Oshimili North Local Government Area, I wish you many more years of fruitful service, good health and the blessings of the Almighty.”
Happy birthday the Boss of Bosses!”
