President Buhari Celebrated Segun Awolowo At 59, Salutes Him for Service to Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a message of felicitation to Chief Segun Awolowo on his 59th birthday.

In a statement issued by Femi Adesina, Presidential Media Aide, the Nigerian president says he joins family and friends to rejoice with former Executive Director/CEO of Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), 2013-2021, Segun Awolowo Jnr, on his 59th birthday, September 27, 2022.

“President Buhari salutes the lawyer for years of service to the nation, accepting appointments to share his wealth of knowledge and wisdom, including Special Assistant to the President on Traditional Institutions, Secretary of Social Development, FCT, and working in President’s Office with Budget Monitoring and Price Intelligence Unit, also known as Due Process, now Bureau for Public Procurement (BPP).

“The President notes Awolowo’s extensive work with four Nigerian Presidents and three FCT Ministers, which reveals his patriotism and zeal to make a difference, successfully initiating and pursuing a visionary policy of Zero-oil Plan in NEPC, which calls for repositioning of the economy to favour non-oil exports.

“As the scion of the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo marks his 59th birthday, President Buhari believes his experience will find relevance and greater expressions as he moves higher in public service, ready and willing to make an impact on growth of the nation.
The President prays for good health, strength and greater heights for the former Executive Director of NEPC”, the statement added.
