An Ikare Akoko United State based PDP Chieftain, Honorable Afolami Olabomi has congratulated the former Ondo State Govenor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko who clocks 68 today.
Mimiko’s birthday message was contained in a statement by the former House of Representatives aspirant.
Hon. Olabomi affirmed the contributions of the PDP stalwart to the political, economic and social development of Ondo State and by extension Nigeria, setting a standard in leadership, governance and philanthropy.
He said Mimiko’s “courage, resilience, selflessness and nobility in always placing the welfare and unity of the nation above self.”
“Sir; today is your 68th birthday and I wish you a very happy birthday and many more long years of good health, happiness and above all God’s mercies.
Sir, I know that your best years are still ahead of you and cannot wait for them to unravel.
You have long stood for square pegs in square holes when it comes to making leadership choices and you have ignored cliché political disadvantages suffered by many of your protegees and instead elevated them with your mentorship.
You have demonstrated a knack for finding the “rat” which no one sees and have used this forward-thinking ability to lay foundations for buildings whose building blocks were years away from being manufactured.
Your Excellency, today I am joining your family, friends, associates and supporters worldwide to celebrate you on your 68th birthday anniversary.
May the almighty God strengthen you and give you the enablement to do more for more for Ondo state and Nigeria as a country.
Once again, Happy birthday sir and I wish you very many happy returns.”
