My dear M.O.R,
Today marks a great day in your private and professional journey through life as you become a year older on the occasion of your birthday.
To this end, I, Senator Ademola Adeleke ,the Executive Governor of Osun state heartily celebrate you and your family for the grace to live to witness yet another year on earth.
I specifically celebrate your endless commitment to the growth and development of my administration as my Chief spokesperson and Special Adviser of Cabinet rank.
Since our paths crossed and which thankfully dovetailed into the collective mandate of the people of Osun state in giving me their mandate as their well loved Governor, your unblemish forthrightness and broad mindedness, in the field of media, no doubt, have continued to endear you to me in such a manner that, I always see you as a Chief Spokesperson with an uncommon strength, wisdom and skills.
However, as a wake up call, I want to remind you, that, birthdays are occasions to take a stock of the past and present of ones journey through life so as to put one in a good stead to make an informed decision into the future.
Rasheed, I challenge you, therefore, not to get carried away by the euphoria of today’s occasion but as another opportunity to make an informed decision for a greater and better life style in the coming years .
While I am glad to tell the whole world that, I am proud to know and associate with you, I also use this opportunity ,on behalf of the entire members of the Osun state Executive Council, the Government and the entire good people of the state to, once again, rejoice with you and your family on this occasion of your birthday on earth.
Finally, I pray that Almighty Allah, Whom you piously serve, day and night, will continue to bless you with good health, long life and happiness.
Happy birthday, Mallam Olawale Rasheed (MOR).
