President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Sir (Chief) Celestine Osim Tawo as he turns 80 years.
The President, in a statement released today, saluted the many decades put into national service and development by the respected South-South leader, who had variously served as Commissioner in Cross River State, Board Director of Federal Mortgage Bank, community leader, and Knight of the Order of Saint John International (KSJ), among others.
He lauded the contributions of Sir Tawo to the peace that currently subsists in the Niger Delta region.
The president urged him to continue deploying his influence and wisdom to the sustainability of amity and concord in the area, and the country at large.
President Buhari also greeted the entire Tawo family, their friends and associates.
He prayed for longer life and good health for the celebrant, as he continues to serve God and humanity.
