The Secretary to the Government of the State of Osun and frontline progressive politician, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, has joined thousands of well wishers across the world to congratulate the Asiwaju Adinni of Yorubaland and prominent businessman, Alhaji Olatunde Badmus on his 72nd birthday.
This was contained in a goodwill and congratulatory message personally signed by Adeoti and made available to journalists in Osogbo, the state capital.
According to the senior government official, Alhaji Badmus has paid his dues as a businessman and philanthropist in the country.
He highlighted that many Nigerians today have been beneficiaries of the celebrant’s magnanimity through employment in his various companies.
He stressed that the celebrant remains one of the very few Nigerians in his class who still mix freely with members of the indigenous community irrespective of social class or political leanings.
He further noted and described Alhaji Badmus as a bridge builder of no mean repute in view of his relationship with all and sundry, irrespective of generational gaps, across the country.
“Alhaji Badmus is a clear example of the dictum that with diligence and hard work, it is possible to attain greatness in whatever one sets out to achieve in life.
“As a young man from a humble background, you have climbed the ladder of success in a way that clearly marks you as a role model for the younger generation,” Alhaji Adeoti observed.
While wishing the celebrant many more active years ahead, Adeoti prayed that the celebrant will spend the rest of his days in good health, abundance and prosperity in the land of the living.
He therefore admonished younger generation of Nigerians to emulate all the good attributes of the celebrant and make a creed of his lifestyle of simplicity and accommodation.
