President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated a former Nigeria’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Dr. Christopher Kolade, who turns 85, on Thursday.
The president expressed the belief that the eminent octogenarian has earned the respect and honour of both the young and old by walking in the fear of God, and leading a life of integrity, which are invaluable attributes that he recommends to all Nigerians, especially aspiring leaders.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement, said President Buhari joins all professional colleagues, friends and family of Kolade in celebrating the graceful life of the versatile scholar and board room guru, whose achievements in various undertakings, both in the private and public sector, clearly underscore the power of discipline, focus and integrity.
“As he turns 85 years, the President commends Dr. Kolade’s many years of contributions to national development as an academic, administrator and a diplomat, especially in continually counselling leaders and mentoring the younger generation.
“The President prays that the almighty God will grant Dr. Kolade more wisdom, longer life and good health to continually serve the nation and humanity,” the statement read.
