Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC),in birthday message to the former Head of State, retired Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, described him as the architect of Nigeria`s current democratic dispensation.
He stated this on Wednesday in Abuja in the party`s congratulatory message to mark Abubakar’s 75th birthday.
“The party recalls with pride your role as the architect of the current democratic dispensation after a troubled and challenging period of transition.
“Since your exit from office, you have worked tirelessly to ensure peace in the country and in trouble-prone areas of Africa,’’ Odigie-Oyegun said.
He added that in the lead up to the 2015 general elections, the former head of state endeared himself to many as a man of peace.
This, he said, was as a result of his outstanding work as head of the National Peace Committee for the Elections.
Odigie-Oyegun wished the retired general many more happy, healthy and fulfilled years of service to the nation.
