President Muhammadu Buhari has rejoiced with prominent Lagos politician and mother of Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alhaja Lateefat Olufunke Gbajabiamila, as she turns 91 on March 2nd, 2021.
The Special Adviser to the President, (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina in a statement said Buhari felicitated with the United Kingdom-trained nurse, who, after her foray into politics, became the first elected female Local Government chairman in Lagos State, under the Lateef Jakande administration.
According to his statement, Buhari greets her family, political associates, and well-wishers, noting that Mama Gbajabiamila has served Lagos State and the country well, having been for many years a member of the Federal and State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Boards.
He commended Alhaja Gbajabiamila’s piety to all and sundry, as she’s a foremost leader in the Ansar-u-Deen Society of Nigeria, which pedestals her as an accomplished person in the spiritual realm, along with successes on the professional and political fronts.
“Buhari wished the nonagenarian greater joy and good health, praying that she would continue to rejoice in her children, among whom is Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker, House of Representatives,” the statement added.
