Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has felicitated with Martin Luther Agwai, a retired general of the Nigerian Army on his 70th birthday describing the former Chief of Defence Staff “as a disciplined, forthright and selfless believer in national service to his fatherland.”

Atiku, in a congratulatory message released on Thursday by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, in Abuja, hailed Agwai on attaining the milestone of three and half scores on earth, urging him not to waiver in his commitment to service to humanity.

“He is a patriotic officer, fine gentleman and a People’s General whose immense talents shall continue be of invaluable assets to our great nation. General Agwai is also a cerebral leader of men, competent, capable and of good character”, the Waziri of Adamawa said.

While wishing Agwai many more years in good health and vitality, the PDP presidential candidate enjoined the former army chief to continue to avail the country the benefit of his vast experience in the current march to make Nigeria work again.
