The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), Friday in Abuja warmly felicitated with scholar, administrator, and journalist, Dr Yemi Ogunbiyi, on his 75th birthday, joining family, friends and associates to rejoice with him on many achievements, especially in the media and literary world.
Buhari’s birthday message is contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, titled, ‘President Buhari greets Dr Yemi Ogunbiyi at 75.’
The statement read, “The President congratulated Dr Ogunbiyi on the milestone, rejoicing with the leading light who had served variously as Managing Director of The Guardian Books, and the Daily Times of Nigeria.
“As the scholar-turned-journalist celebrates 75th birthday, the President extols his insight into issues and contributions to knowledge and public discourse.
“President Buhari joins the Nigerian Union of Journalists, Nigeria Guild of Editors and Newspapers Proprietors’ Association of Nigeria in rejoicing with Dr Ogunbiyi, whose legacies of goodwill in service continue to speak.”
He, therefore, prayed for Dr Ogunbiyi’s good health, strength, and longer life.
