President Muhammadu Buhari has rejoiced with former President Goodluck Jonathan on his 65th birthday, November 20, 2022.

The President, in a statement issued on Saturday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, joined the family, particularly his wife, Patience, and mother, Eunice, in celebrating another milestone in the former president’s life.

President Buhari noted his unique position in the growth and development of the nation, sacrificing personal ambition for the greater good of the country, and winning the hearts of Nigerians and the world as a man of peace, by carrying on his legacy of truce and amity to many countries.

He also recalled his political journey, which had been shaped by the mercies and grace of the Almighty God, starting as Deputy Governor, 1999-2005, Governor, 2005 -2007, Vice President, 2007-2010 and President, 2010-2015.

The President said the friendliness, loyalty, and humility of Dr Jonathan had continued to open opportunities for service to humanity while defining a path for the former President to invest in people, institutions, and nations.

President Buhari prayed for his well-being and that of his family on behalf of the government and Nigerians.
