President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday  felicitated with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, as he turned 50 years.

President Buhari, on behalf of the Federal Executive Council also  joined the National Assembly, the Nigerian Bar Association, friends and family of the leader in celebrating the years of remarkable achievements and awards that have culminated into the golden jubilee.

The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, yesterday extolled Dogara’s humility, simplicity and discipline in providing exceptional leadership for the lower house for over two years by diligently bridging the gaps and creating a harmonious atmosphere for debates and exchange of ideas for national development.

He affirmed that the Speaker’s personal attributes of selflessness, maturity and friendliness have substantially eased the relationship between the executive and the legislative arm, resulting in the passage of bills that directly impact the livelihood of Nigerians.

Recalling his personal interactions with the Speaker, and having followed his political trajectory in the House of Representatives, the president expressed confidence that Nigeria’s future can only be secured with great leadership by younger Nigerians, who, according to him, are fired with the zeal to build one great nation that everyone can call a home.

The President prayed that the almighty God will grant the Speaker longer life, good health and wisdom to serve the country and humanity.
