32. Happy birthday Prof. you are one Nigerian who has every reason to turn his back against Nigeria. The atrocities that Nigeria can meet on its citizens you got a firsthand experience as a child yet you chose to stand for Nigeria. You have never shield away from any issue. You have never played the politically correct or elderly correct card. You have stayed on a cause and said it as it is. God bless you.

Nigeria is lucky to have you even though it never values or realizes the worth of what it has. You are an inspiration to humanity. You see people for the humans that they are and not for the label that has been placed on them. You stand and defend humanity always. On this your birthday, I wish you the Nigeria of your dreams where peace and justice reigns. I wish you many happy returns. I wish you good health and prosperity. I wish you all the best that life has to offer and more. May God continue to bless, protect, and strengthen you, Amen.
