Chief Bisi Akande
Prominent Nigerians including President Muhammadu Buhari and the leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have been celebrating one the respected pillars of the party, Chief Bisi Akande as he clocks the enviable age of 80.

President Muhammadu Buhari, in a statement from the office of his spokesman, Femi Adesina joined all members of APC in saluting the first Interim Chairman of the party and former Governor of Osun State.

The President congratulated Chief Akande, his family and friends for the laudable achievements over the years, which threw him into the limelight at an early age, particularly highlighting his sacrifices in public service at both state and national levels.

Continued Adesina “As the first Interim Chairman of the APC, President Buhari affirms that the former governor’s pivotal and visionary leadership prepared the party for history in 2015, which saw it unseating an incumbent president for the first time in an election in Nigeria.

“President Buhari extols Chief Akande’s loyalty and faithfulness to the party and the cause of building a strong and unified nation, as he consistently challenges governments and leaders to higher ideals, and reminds them to think out of the box in meeting the needs of the poor and vulnerable.

“The President believes that the octogenarian’s good-nature, large heart and broad outlook on issues have impacted positively on party politics and democracy in Nigeria, praying that God will grant him longer life, strength and wisdom to serve more.”
