The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of Osun has congratulated Chief Adebisi Akande as he celebrates his 79th birthday.
A statement issued by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi disclosed that the APC joined families and friends to honour the great leader and use the occasion to also celebrate some of his grand achievements.
“It is to the credit of Papa Akande that APC was nursed until it was given birth to in 2013. We had to depend on his wisdom and political sagacity in putting together parties of different orientations into one cohesive family that we are today.
“Besides, we celebrate his uncommon wisdom, which was not appreciated by some, at the time he was governor, in placing this state in a firm foundation administratively.
“Also Pa Akande will be treasured for his statemanship which cuts across party lines and has brought him to the forefront of national leadership.
“As he turns 79 last Tuesday, the party wished him many more glorious years of selfless service to the state of Osun and the country in general”, the statement reads.
