He said: “Warm congratulations to a former Chairman of All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, on his 70th birthday.
“On this occasion, we pay a special tribute to Oshiomhole for his unwavering commitment to democracy, good governance, and the development of a free and open society.
“A valiant fighter for the masses and strong grassroots mobiliser, Oshiomhole has always worked in the interest of an average person.
“As a groundbreaking labour activist and charismatic president of Nigeria Labour Congress, he battled unflinchingly for better work conditions and improved standard of living for workers in the country,” the former Lagos governor remarked.
As governor of Edo, the APC stalwart said that Oshiomhole launched many strategic infrastructural projects that had continued to make a difference in the lives of the people of the state.
“We must thank him for his efforts as a former APC national chairman. He did his best to espouse party discipline and advance the cause of progressive good governance,” he said.
