The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State on Political Matters, Hon. Omoluabi Olabode Adeyemi has congratulated the State deputy governor, Chief Edward Onoja as he marks 46.
Describing Chief Onoja as a rare breed, Omoluabi in a congratulatory message he personally endorsed in Lokoja on Sunday stated that the deputy governor has brought honour to the youth community where he belongs.
According to Omoluabi, the deputy governor is a perfect specimen of an upwardly mobile young man who has exhibited uncommon loyalty to the government and people of Kogi through selfless service, hard work and commitment.
“His Excellency Chief Edward Onoja as I celebrate you today, needless to emphasise that you have not only brought a glaring ray of hope to the community of young people, but your story is a perfect demonstration that loyalty and patriotism pays.
“In fully keying into the dream of our leader, His Excellency Alhaji Yahaya Bello, you have preached and demonstrated that the era of tribal jingoism and ethnic supremacy is gone in our state. As a man well travelled, cosmopolitan in the real sense of it, you have never fallen short of treating everyone irrespective of religion or race with fairness, equity and dignity.
“You are a dedicated servant of the people of Kogi whose trust you have jealously guarded, positioning is a model figure among our younger generation. Your brilliant disposition in handling the affairs of our state has been a significant value addition in the actualization of a Kogi our dear governor, His Excellency Alhaji Yahaya Bello had envisioned when he gunned for the number one seat in the land. Posterity has a pride of place for you.
“I join your friends, associates and the APC political family to raise a toast of prosperity, growth and endless divine providence as you mark your birthday today. For your visible efforts in enthroning a Kogi next generations shall be proud of, you shall be celebrated in a long time to come” Omoluabi noted.
He also prayed God to continually use Chief Onoja and his principal, Governor Yahaya Bello to change the Kogi narratives for good in their avowed commitment to leave developmental legacies in the state.
