Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, extended his felicitations to former Nigerian military President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, on the occasion of his 82nd birthday.

Through a press release from his Chief Press Secretary, Sir Festus Ahon, in Asaba, the Governor celebrated the veteran statesman and acknowledged his unwavering dedication to national unity and progress.

The Governor also highlighted Gen. Babangida’s instrumental role in the establishment of numerous states, including Delta, and Local Government Areas across the country.

Oborevwori said: “Your Excellency, your life has been one of service to the people of Nigeria, and as Deltans, we remain appreciative for your effort in seeing to it that our beloved state, Delta, was created in 1991.

“As you mark 82 years of your life’s journey today, we commend you for your remarkable contributions to nation-building and all that you have accomplished through your humble beginning to your illustrious career in the military, culminating to your attainment of military President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria.

“As we commemorate the 32nd anniversary of Delta State’s creation on 27th August, we are grateful for your excellent and legendary contributions to its realisation.

“There is no doubt that the creation of the State has had significant and positive effects on the lives of Deltans and others who reside therein and conduct businesses, as well as on the growth of the State’s economy, infrastructure, and human capital.

“I must also thank you for your daring contributions to national concerns and your tactical backing of sincere attempts to make our Country great.

“We hold you in the highest regard as a National icon and elder statesman for fulfilling the most significant wish of Deltans at the time you did.’’

“On behalf of my family, the Government and people of Delta, I heartily congratulate you, our great leader and elder statesman, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, GCFR, on your 82nd birth anniversary.

“As a renowned leader, you actively served the Country by assuring the preservation of its unity and fostering harmony and tolerance despite our obvious diversity.

“We pray that God will keep you safe and provide you additional years of excellent health so that you can continue to serve humanity.”
