HRH Alhaji Ahmed Haruna Kuraja Sarki overall of Alimosho and chairman of the chieftaincy council of Arewa community Alimosho local government has on behalf of himself and the chieftaincy council expressed joy and happiness to celebrate with the deputy governor of Lagos state, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, as he marks his 56 prosperous years on the surface of the earth.
Pinpointing the grace attached to the attainment of the milestone by the technocrat, the royal father, cited a position of the prophet of Islam (s.aw.), which affirmed longevity in the life of man as a grace and a rare privilege by God, to increase one’s good deeds.
Continuing, he said, looking through the Lagos state deputy governor’s staggering credentials, it was very clear, he had the hand of God all over him.
His sacrifices and contributions to the centre of excellence is eminently evident and acknowledged by all and sundry; he certainly is a special gift from God to Lagos state and of course, Nigeria, Sarki stressed.
No wonder, His Excellency, Mr Babajide Olushola Sanwoolu, the governor of Lagos, rightly described him as a brother, friend and partner in the sacrifice to attain the greater Lagos envisioned by leaders of thought.
His humility and down to earth persona is rare and only found in privileged individuals.
The assembly of Sarkis under my stewardship and our entire membership at the chieftaincy council of Arewa community Alimosho local government wish you Allah’s unceasing presence in your life, sound health, guidance, wisdom and protection against all oddities as you match forward in service Lagos state and humanity.
Happy Birthday once again.
