“On behalf of my family, the people and the government of Kwara State, I congratulate elder statesman General David Jemibewon on his 80th birthday anniversary. By all yardsticks of greatness, the retired General has distinguished himself as an asset and a source of pride to the people of Old Kwara State, a part of which his community Ijumu was until the creation of Kogi State,” the Governor said in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary Rafiu Ajakaye.

Throughout his years in public service and after, he maintained his good name and displayed uncommon brilliance.
