Senator Rafiu Adebayo Ibrahim has joined eminent Nigerians and in the diaspora to felicitate with the former President of the Senate and the Chairman National Assembly, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, as the latter clocked 59years of age.
Senator Rafiu described him as a golden fish that cannot be hidden, but which shines any where it visits or touches.
In his congratulatory message to felicitate with the 2023 Presidential hopeful, Senator Rafiu said Saraki is worthy of celebration as an icon who has touched several lives and continues to do so without relenting.
“You remain one of the most sincere and objective person that I have ever met, by virtue of your intellect, leadership style, benevolence, magnanimity, compassion and undying passion for societal growth,” he said.
He also expressed admiration at Saraki’s calmness in the face of challenges.
“I am mostly enamoured of your composure in times of upheavals. You take challenges as they come and combat them with so much calm, so much panache and intellect. Indeed, you are a true Leader.”
The Senator who represented Kwara South at the upper chamber in the 8th Assembly, lauded Saraki for being a true leader who groomed individuals and gave them the chance to make meaningful impact in kwara and Nigeria as a whole.
The Ojoku-born lawmaker commended Saraki for sustaining the good legacies of his father and family patriarch, Dr Abubakar Olusola Saraki.
While noting that Saraki is blessed already and cannot be stopped no matter the machination, he asked him to ignore detractors and remain focused in his destined mission of making live meaningful for the common man.
Senator Rafiu used the occasion of Saraki’s 59th birthday to wish him long life in sound health.
He also prayed Allah to make his 2023 presidential bid a reality.
