President Muhammadu Buhari is rejoicing with Development Economist, retired Permanent Secretary, public affairs commentator, and community leader, Chief Deji Fasuan, as he turns 89 today.
This was revealed in a statement signed by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on media and publicity.
Fasuan who was Chairman of Committee for Creation of Ekiti State between May 1991-October 1996, was a member of the Constituent Assembly representing Ekiti Central, (1988-1989), and holds the National Honour of Member, Order of the Niger (MON).
The President lauds his many decades of service to nation, state, and community, saying that his commitment has not gone unnoticed, and urges the younger generation to garner inspiration from such lofty example.
President Buhari noted that “Fasuan has lived a life of service, which is well acknowledged and appreciated at different levels of government.”
While rejoicing with family, friends and associates of the grand octogenarian, born on a date which eventually became the country’s National Day, President Buhari prayed God for Fasuan to continue to wax in good health, longer life and prosperity.
