Buhari greets renowned pharmacist, Dahiru Suleiman Wali at 83

President Muhammadu Buhari felicitates with renowned pharmacist and community leader, Dahiru Suleiman Wali, who turns 83 on July 23, 2018.

President Buhari joins family, friends and professional colleagues of the highly resourceful pharmacist in celebrating the milestone, which has been lined with many years of achievements and recognitions for his contributions to knowledge and an extensive practice to ensure a healthy country.

The President commends the exceptional brilliance of the pharmacist, whose training predated the Nigerian independence, yet he has maintained a rising influence in his field by working for a long period and setting up a pharmacy, Tsamiya,  since the 70’s that has continued to cater for many with quality drugs.

President Buhari affirms that Wali, who travelled widely to acquire knowledge in pharmacy, was magnanimous in returning to Nigeria with his family to offer his services to citizens and inspire a generation of community pharmacists committed to promoting healthy living.

As he turns 83, the President believes the legacy of being your brothers’ keeper which Wali instituted with the community pharmacy will become the hallmark of pharmaceutical practice in the country, with stronger focus on providing quality health care and safe guarding the lives of the people.

President Buhari prays that the almighty God will grant the pharmacist longer life, good health and more strength to keep serving the nation and humanity.
