President Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, felicitated the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, on his 70th birthday.
Tinubu described him as “one of the most reliable citizens” Nigeria can boast of.
The president’s birthday message was contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, titled ‘President Tinubu celebrates Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, on 70th birthday.’
“The people of Benue have subscribed to his sterling leadership principles and leveraged his remarkable talent for so many years because of what he has always stood for.
“He will be with you in the best of days, and even most reliably, in the worst of days. The country has been blessed with the dedication and sure-handedness of Senator Akume,” the President said.
Tinubu commended the former Benue State Governor for his consistency and perpetual dedication to duty in coordinating government affairs.
He also cited Akume’s “rich portfolio of leadership experience and laurels as governor, minister, senator, and top-flight public servant, which he brings to bear in his current role,” the statement read.
Ngelale disclosed that “President Tinubu celebrated Senator Akume, extolling the temperance, affability, harmony, and stability he consistently personifies as he coordinates activities both within and with other arms of government, making himself accessible, focused, and dependable in bridging the divide between policy and implementation.”
While wishing the SGF good health and strength, the President implored him not to relent in his diligent service to the country.
