On behalf of the Governing Council, Academic Board, Management, staff and students of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, I heartily felicitate with the Deputy Governor of Kogi State, His Excellency, Chief Edward David Onoja, on the auspicious occasion of his 49th birthday anniversary.

Your Excellency, Sir, with a kind, unassuming mien that defies categorization, you have waded through life as an enigma, and today, you stand tall as an accomplished gentleman.

You are an enigma not only in terms of accomplishments, but also in loyalty and humility.

Through loyalty to your Principal, His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello, and commitment to service, you have contributed immensely to the actualization of the New Direction blueprint of the government.

We join the good people of Kogi State in wishing you a happy birthday and pray for more years of eventful, credible, insightful, forthright and impactful service to the State and beyond.

Once again, Congratulations on the occasion of your 49th birthday, Sir.

Salisu Ogbo Usman PhD, fcia, FABEN.
