Former Vice president Atiku Abubakar, celebrates Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka as he clocks 85.
The 2019 presidential election 1st runner-up, shares his wishes on his Twitter page.
“Happy 85th birthday Professor Oluwole Soyinka. I would have used the word icon to describe you, but you are beyond that. You are an institution. An institution of literary excellence and conscientious activism. A national treasure, you are Nigeria’s pride and a beacon to Africa.
“In wishing you many more years of life, I celebrate the fact that, like wine, you are getting better with age. We have a lot to thank you for. From putting us on the Nobel map, to getting FRSC up & running, and expanding the minds of our youth. We can never thank you enough. -AA”
