Atiku Abubakar’s loyalists celebrate the former vice president as he unlocks chapter 73. One of the former president’s aides, Segun Sowunmi, says Atiku has grown to become a dignitary name.
Sowunmi acknowledges that Atiku’s strength lies in his ability to control himself even where others would lose their cool.
It was a joyful morning on Monday, November 25, as loyalists, friends, and supporters of Atiku Abubakar, celebrated the former vice president of Nigeria, as he unlocks 73 years on earth.
Segun Sowunmi, one of his aides, set the step with a statement, more like a letter to Atiku, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections.
In the statement, Sowunmi extolled the goodness of the Adamawa politician, saying the statement had mastered the art of self-discipline and control.
“Yours has so far been a life worthy of celebrations. Indeed the mercies of Allah must not be despised, from the beginning through a career in the public service,”
“To such a beautiful family made up of such beautiful children and associates so numerous that cut across the length and breadth of the globe,” Sowunmi wrote.
“I must say, sir, you are an unusual personality. I conclude that by careful management you have mastered the self and your self-control is incredible;”
“if there be any of your numerous attributes I see, the greatest is your ability to be so calm even when most others will legitimately lose their heads,”
He said calling Atiku an inspiration. Sowunmi further expressed optimism that Atiku, who he called a ‘leaders leader’, would remain valuable to Nigeria and the world.
Indeed the mercies of Allah must not be despised, from the beginning through a career in the public service, to such a beautiful family made up of such beautiful children and associates so numerous that cut across the length and breadth of the globe.
