President Muhammadu Buhari has sent warm felicitations to Executive Director of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Mr Segun Awolowo, on his 56th birthday, congratulating him for his consistent service to the nation for many years.
A statement issued by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina says President joins family members, friends and professional colleagues of the lawyer and Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s family in celebrating another milestone.
The President says that the Executive Director has demonstrated keen interest in humanity, and patriotism in affairs of the nation that separated his grandfather for commendation.
President Buhari affirmed that the Zero oil target introduced by the NEPC, with the goal of diversifying the economy by increasing the chains of valued-added exports, had impacted greatly on the economy, prompting Nigerians to also consider the global market in productions and marketing strategy.
As Mr Awolowo turns 56, the President urged more commitment and dedication to public service, assuring him that posterity would remember his sacrifices and loyalty to the nation.
The statement says Mr Segun Awolowo had worked with four presidents.
President Buhari prays for more strength and wisdom for the Executive Director of NEPC.
