President Muhammadu Buhari has extended his best wishes to the Chairman of the Editorial Board of The Nation Newspapers, Sam Omatseye, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Monday, Buhari joined members of the Fourth Estate of Realm and the literati in celebrating one of their own.
According to the president, Omatseye has distinguished himself in his career and gained recognition nationally and internationally for diligence, excellence and professionalism.
The president commended Omatseye, an advocate of good governance, free and independent press, for contributing his quota to advancing the role of the media as a vital part of democracy in a heterogeneous society like Nigeria.
Buhari said, like many other lovers of good journalistic works, he looks forward to reading more inspiring stories, ideas, perspectives and reliable information by Omatseye.
He prayed almighty God to grant the celebrant more years of good health and fruitfulness.
