President Muhammadu Buhari joins members of the All Progressives Congress in celebrating former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Pauline Kedem Tallen, on her 60th birthday.
President Buhari congratulates Tallen, who also served the country as Minister of State, Science and Technology, for her foresight and courage in championing the cause of women participation in politics and governance, particularly recognising her pivotal role as the first, and only, female Deputy Governor from the North.
The President believes Tallen’s meteoric rise in politics can be attributed to her appetite and doggedness for pursuing truth, fairness and balance in representation for women, describing her as a political amazon that has written her name indelibly in Nigeria’s history.
As a party stalwart, President Buhari affirms that the former deputy governor’s advocacy for internal democracy and bottom-up processes in decision making and execution has contributed to the sense of direction within the party, commending her sense of balance and loyalty.
The President shares the joy of the birthday with all family members, friends and associates of Tallen, praying that God will grant her longer life, good health and wisdom to continue serving the nation.
