The President of the 8th National Assembly, Bukola Saraki received birthday messages from many Nigerians, today.
Not too long ago, President Buhari tweeted the number three man in the country to wish him a happy 54th Birthday.
He wrote: “@bukolasaraki, one of the most influential politicians of our time. I wish you many more prosperous years.”
Members of the All Progressives Congress in the UK also posted a message to Dr Saraki, who represents Kwara Central.
To celebrate his birthday, Senator Saraki hosted 72 “Kwara indigenes who made first class honours.”
Senator Sarkai said he decided to host the first class students “to encourage and remind them that the best resource we have in Nigeria is not Oil, Gold or Tantalite but Human Capital.”
He promised to “continue to use my position to improve the human capital resource with any opportunity I find.”
Some of the freshly graduating student have already secured employment through the Senator’s friends.
The 54-year old former medical doctor urged “others that might want to celebrate me to consider extending helping hand, especially to young entrepreneurs who focus on Made in Nigeria goods and services.”
PMB, as he is fondly called also celebrates his own birthday in a December 17.
His daughter Zahara, 21, got married to Ahmed Indimi on December 16.
