President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the former Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomole on clocking the age of 70 by Monday April 4, 2022.
Adams Oshiomole who served as the APC Chairman ensured President Buhari returned to Aso Villa for a second term in 2019. In the President’s message to the former APC Chairman, he described him as a person willing to dedicate himself for the greater good of the country.
Last month, presidential hopeful and APC National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu celebrated clocking the age of 70. With Oshiomole’s new age, he is now an age mate with the APC’s National Leader.
