The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday congratulated former President Olusegun Obasanjo as he celebrates his 81st birthday.

In a statement, PDP described Obasanjo as an outstanding nationalist; a courageous and dedicated leader, who has made immeasurable, sacrifices towards the development, stability and growth of the nation.

The former president will clock 81 today.
The statement which was signed by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it remains proud of Obasanjo.

The statement read in part:

Indeed, the PDP intensely celebrates former President Obasanjo who stands tall as one of the best performed Nigerian Presidents chiefly because his administration founded and anchored its policies and programmes on PDP’s people-based manifesto and ideology”

“Obasanjo has excelled as an international figure and made outstanding contributions toward global peace and development, particularly, in the African sub-region”.
