State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Osun State, Prince Gboyega Famodun, has congratulated the immediate-past Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon Najeem Salaam, on his attainment of 54 years on earth.
Famodun in a statement signed by his Media Consultant, Kola Olabisi, today said, birthday celebration was a sign of thaksgiving to God Almighty for His divine protection over one thus far.
He said, the greatest divine gift to mankind is that of life as it’s the magnanimity of God that is seeing mortals through on daily basis without hitches.
The APC chairman said, he specially thanked God for the life of the former Speaker as he is among the favoured human beings as it has pleased the Lord of Hosts for him to have accomplished some of his academic and political ambitions within his five decades and four years on earth.
Famodun enjoined him to continue to do without hinderance what endears him to his numerous admirers both in the state and beyond.
He said, as a consumate politician, Najeem has been adding value to the APC not only in his state constituency but across the state.
The Igbajo-born APC state chairman recalled that the past activities of the ‘birthday boy’ as a public officer in the state were pointers to the fact that there is no way the history of Osun could be successfully told without acknowledging the positive roles of the parliament under his watch for eight years without rancour, crisis or riot.
He urged the younger politicians to learn from the life of Salaam who, despite the fact that he was not born with silver spoon in his mouth, strived to be counted among the successful politicians in Osun State.
Famodun also stated that another rare quality of Salaam was that he is a complete party man who believes in the supremacy of the party.
In Famodun’s words: “I congratulate our own former Speaker, Hon Sallam, on the celebration of his 54th birthday anniversary.
“May God continue to enlarge your coast in all ramifications by the reason of your new age”, he prayed.
