Amidst electoral mandate battle, Obasanjo’s Vice President of 8 years, Atiku Abubakar, took out time to send him a special birthday message.
“A very happy 82nd birthday to you, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. No living Nigerian has given as much to Nigeria in peacetime and in war as you have. May almighty God grant you many more years in good health and continued service to Nigeria and the world at large. -AA”
