He said: “let me welcome you formally to my very modest office, thank you for taking time out to visit. I am in receipt of your birthday invitation, I promise you that I will be there live with our friends. It is something that we want to join in celebrating because longevity and good health are a rare combination. Some people have longevity, but poor health, others have good health but not long life, so when God gives you both, only He and He alone decides whom he chooses to so favour.

“We pray that the birthday activities will come without any incident and God will preside over the entire affairs.”
