Buhari wishes Richard Akinnola a joyous 60th birthday

President Muhammadu Buhari heartily felicitates with journalist, human rights and pro-democracy activist, Richard Akinnola, on his 60th birthday.

President Buhari joins family, friends and colleagues of the journalist, the media and civil society in celebrating the landmark age, which he has dedicated to the service of God, country and humanity.
The President commends the uncompromising posture of the activist in always telling the truth to leaders, insisting on propriety and regularly mobilising to safeguard the sanctity of human rights and the integrity of the nation.
President Buhari reaffirms that the democracy that the country enjoys today was borne out of the sacrifices and forthrightness of individuals like Akinnola, who have not relented in fighting for good governance and ensuring that democracy transcends elections to include a lifestyle of respect, dignity and accountability in Nigeria.
The President extols Akinnola’s magnanimity in setting up a foundation, Richard Akinnola Foundation, which caters for the underprivileged and families of journalists.
The President prays that the almighty God will grant Akinnola longer life, good health and prosperity as he continues serving the country.
