The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Friday, congratulated the founding father of Ekiti State, Deji Fasuan, who turns 91, on October 1, 2022.
Buhari’s congratulatory message is contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, titled ‘President Buhari greets Ekiti State founding father, Pa Deji Fasuan, at 91.’
According to Adesina, “The President rejoices with the Fasuan family, the people and government of Ekiti State, as they celebrate the Jagunmolu of Ado-Ekiti and Asiwaju of Afao-Ekiti, at the landmark age, giving thanks to God for the gift of longevity.
“President Buhari celebrates a life devoted to the service of the community, State and country, particularly as one of the builders of the public service in the former Western Region, and founding General Manager of Investment Corporation, the most successful arm of the Old Ondo State government.
“Pa Fasuan, the President notes, trained as an economist at the Fourah Bay College, Sierra Leone, in the 1950s, and specialised later as an Industrial Economist at the World Bank Headquarters, Washington DC, but always had Nigeria in his mind, and used all the endowments to serve his country creditably.”
Buhari, therefore, wished the Chairman, Committee for the Creation of Ekiti State, and former member of the Constituent Assembly, good health, sound mind and peace, as he turns 91.
