Former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Tuesday described ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo as one of the greatest Nigerians alive.
While felicitating with the former president, who was his principal for eight years, on his 82nd birthday, Atiku said no Nigerian alive has done as much as Obasanjo did for the country.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate also wished his former boss good health and continued service to the nation.
Writing via his Twitter handle on Tuesday, Atiku said: “A very happy 82nd birthday to you, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. No living Nigerian has given as much to Nigeria in peacetime and in war as you have.
“May almighty God grant you many more years in good health and continued service to Nigeria and the world at large.”
Atiku fell out with Obasanjo during his second term in office when his reported presidential ambition pitched him against the former president who was at the time said to be nurturing a third term in office.
The duo, however, reconciled in the build up of the presidential election after Obasanjo endorsed him against President Muhammadu Buhari.
