President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday congratulated the chairman of the Editorial Board of The Nation Newspapers, Sam Omatseye, on his 60th birthday.
Buhari, in a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu, joined members of the fourth estate of the realm and the literati in celebrating one of their own who has distinguished himself in his career and gained recognition nationally and internationally for diligence, excellence and professionalism.
He commended Omatseye for contributing his quota to advancing the role of the media as a vital part of democracy in a heterogeneous society like Nigeria as an advocate of good governance, free and independent press.
Buhari said that like many other lovers of good journalistic works, he looked forward to reading more inspiring stories, ideas, perspectives and reliable information by Omatseye.
The president prayed God Almighty to grant the celebrant more years of good health and fruitfulness.
