Our great Party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) felicitates with our immediate-past National Chairman, H.E. Chief John Odigie-Oyegun on his 79th birthday.
A man of many positive firsts, he distinguished himself during his work in the Civil Service where he rose to become one of the country’s youngest permanent secretaries; served as first-elected governor of Edo State and played a major role in ousting the military junta as one of the pro-democracy activist.
As the first-elected APC National Chairman, he led the party to victory, ousting the failed PDP 16 years reign in Nigeria.
Chief Odigie-Oyegun in his general conduct; progressive and patriotic devotion to duty has deservedly earned the title of an elder statesman.
We join family, friends, associates and other well-wishers in praying for a long, continuously rewarding and healthy life as he continues to contribute to the growth of our great Party and national development.
Mr. Yekini Nabena
Ag. National Publicity Secretary
