The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Saturday, congratulated the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption, Prof Itse Sagay, as he clocks 80 on Sunday.
Buhari’s congratulatory message was contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, ‘President Buhari celebrates Prof Itse Sagay at 80’.
Adesina quoted the President as saying that Sagay’s integrity and commitment to transparency mark him out as a Nigerian of sterling character.
“You have always stood by this administration, particularly in our avowed commitment to fighting corruption, and this you do without fear or favour,” Buhari reportedly said.
