The Commissioner representing Lagos Division at the Local Government Service Commission of Lagos State, Honourable Hakeem Bamgbola has joined millions of Nigerians in saluting the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
In a statement released by him, he described the Speaker of the House of Representatives as an epitome of public service, philanthropy, generosity, a Legislator of inestimable value, a valuable help for the poor folks in time of need, and a reverberating voice in pursuit of succour for the hopeless.
Hon. Bamgbola commended Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila for his contributions nation building, the unstoppable development of Lagos State, and his unquantifiable addition to what Surulere and her beautiful people have turned out to be.
He wrote “Mr Speaker Sir, the people of Surulere and other parts of Lagos State have never had it so good under any Republic or its legislative dispensation as it has experienced under your watch as the Honourable Speaker of the House of Representatives.
“We are elated that you have always made us proud and has not made us waste our votes by believing in your competence and capability over the years.
“Our people will never forget your sense of responsibility, philanthropy and generosity, and your invaluable contribution to humanity through qualitative legislation and representation.
“Sir, for the first time, the people of Surulere, Lagos State and Nigeria in general are witnessing a representation that closed its eyes to boundaries, race, creed, religion, ethnicity and statutory inhibitions, while affording majority of the masses the opportunity to benefit from the benevolence of a Super Representative whose tank of human kindness is voluminous enough for all Nigerians to drink from.
“We will never forget, in a jiffy, your innumerable contributions to the living standards of our people, in terms of provision of infrastructure, revitalisation of the education sector, support to the health and recreational system, and the never-experienced empowerment programmes that you have afforded our people at all stratas of life.
“Sir, as you celebrate a chronological milestone of a life that has been well spent till date, I join millions of Lagosians and Nigerians in general to wish you a happy birthday and more fruitful years in service to your state and fatherland.
“May the grace of Almighty Allah be sufficient for you at all times as you surge forward. On behalf of the good people of Surulere Constituency II, I wish you good health, vigour and unquantifiable prosperity.
Happy birthday and many happy returns,” Bamgbola, a former Chairman of Itire-Ikate Local Council Development Area, said.
