President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Dr. Yemi Ogunbiyi, on his 70th birthday.

Buhari warmly felicitates with all the professional colleagues, friends and family members of the septuagenarian, who has left his footprints in dramatic arts, literature, journalism, publishing and the academia, both in Nigeria and other countries.

According to a statement released on Wednesday by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari believes Ogunbiyi, who is one of the founding members of The Guardian newspapers, played a significant role in shaping Nigeria’s media industry, which has gained a global reputation for its vibrancy, tenacity and fearlessness.

The President also affirms that the appointment of Ogunbiyi as the current Governing Council Chairman of Ife varsity was based on his eruditeness, foresight and exceptional managerial skills in starting and building both public and private institutions into success stories.

Buhari prays that the almighty God would grant the scholar and administrator more wisdom, strength and longer life to serve his country and humanity.
