On the occasion of your 76th birthday, I give thanks to God who has kept faith with you through all the ups and downs of life.You have been a blessing to many, including me for which I remain grateful.
Your trail-blazing role as an investor on d home front, your foray into d challenging worlds of aviation & publishing, your bold entrance into d vortex of national politics and your philanthropy mark u out as a trailblazer of historical significance.
The more I watch Nigeria evolve, the more I appreciative your role as a statesman and Patriot. I want to place on record d principled position you spearheaded, with other Patriots who, in 1998/1999, insisted that it was d “turn” of Orlu Senatorial zone to produce d APP governorship candidate.
That was how Engineer Ezekiel Izuogu emerged d APP governorship flag-bearer for Imo State. It is also important to recall that following d APP example, d PDP leaders, notably Chief I.D. Nwoga (OWERRI), Chief Engr. Charles Ugwu (OKIGWE) and d late Senator Emeka Echeruo (OKIGWE) among others ensured that d party’s candidate also came from Orlu. That was selflessness @ its best.
I earnestly implore God to continue to watch over you and grant you many more years of service to Nigeria in peace and good health.On behalf of myself and my family, this is wishing you happy birthday.
With all my love,
For a better society
