On behalf of my family and campaign team, I wish to congratulate our dear and deeply respected Dr. Pius Odubu on the occasion of his birthday.
Dr. Pius is a mature, intelligent, generous, and innovative leader whose service as Deputy Governor of Edo State for eight years delivered historic growth and prosperity, touching many lives and winning many hearts. We now join many others in blessing the day he was given to us.
Long before he assumed the position as Deputy Governor, Dr. Pius Odubu has been a defender of the downtrodden in Edo, whether in his immediate constituency through effective representation in government, or across the state.
In all the years I have known him, he has always been a believer in justice, an instrument for goodness and equality, an avowed ambassador of peace, and one whose calm mien, calculated approach, and strength of vision continues to inspire and serve as a model to many.
We are extremely proud of him for the life he has lived, the achievements he has recorded, and for the innumerable contributions he will yet input to the collective task of moving our State forward.
Okakuo of the universe, as you are fondly called by those of us who are your admirers, I am grateful to you for your support and statesmanship. As we all celebrate you today, I pray that the Almighty God renews your strength, protect you, and bless you with long life in good health. Congratulations!
