A Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and immediate past Senator representing Kogi west senatorial district, Dino Melaye joined million of Nigerians citizens to celebrate with Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki on his 58th birthday anniversary.

“Our adversaries tried to break his soul, they wanted to exterminate any mind they can’t manipulate”.
“But, Saraki emerged in the brutal embrace of tyranny, seared by the savage atmosphere of crude oppression. He was unjustly bullied, yet he robed himself with the authority of morality”.
The statement further stated, “As the most impenetrable darkness is dissipated by a single ray of light, so the army of evil men that assembled against him have been shamed”.
As a result of his epic principle and compatriotism, Saraki is celebrated today as a pre-eminent champion of a peaceful democratic pluralism.
“We have reasons to honor him, because through his impeccable character, his cavalier resolve in pursuing what unites, his sterling leadership acumen and his unshakeable commitment to democratic precepts, he singularly set an exemplary standard for integrity and human development, which will continue to inspire generations around the world”.
Happy birthday to the Distinguished Sen. (Dr) Abubakar Bukola Saraki
