President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday congratulated his
predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, on the occasion of the latter’s 63rd
birthday.

The president’s felicitations were contained in a statement signed by his

He thanked Jonathan for his service to the country and the African
continent, including his work in helping to restore calm to the Republic
of Mali after a military coup earlier this year.
