Abuja, Sept. 23, 2020 President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated former Deputy Governor of Abia, Dr Chris Akomas, on his 60th birthday, wishing the technocrat, administrator and politician more years of strength to keep serving the nation.
In a statement by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Wednesday the president joined all members of the governing party, All Progressives Congress (APC), family and friends of Akomas to celebrate the milestone.

The president affirmed that, as a member of the Board of Trustees of APC and Federal Commissioner at Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission, the former Deputy Governor contributed to various reforms in his state, and at the federal level.
He prayed that the almighty God would continue to bless Akomas and grant him good health and longer life.
