President Muhammadu Buhari has sent warm greetings to the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Oriental Energy Resources, Muhammadu Indimi, on his 72nd birthday, praying for more grace of good health and strength.
Mr Indimi is father in-law to his daughter, Zahra.
The president sent the greetings on behalf of members of his immediate and extended family, and all Nigerians.
“President Buhari joins all family members, friends and business associates of the consummate businessman in celebrating the auspicious moment, which falls within the Eid–el-Kabir sallah season, congratulating Alhaji Indimi for a life of purpose, sacrifice and love for humanity,” a statement by a president’s spokesman, Garba Shehu.
“The President underscores the hard work, discipline and focus that have cumulated in building the Alhaji Indimi business empire, commending his patriotism for investing heavily in human capacity and promotion of the Nigerian brand to the global business community.
“President Buhari believes the businessman’s greatest impact on the economy has been his philanthropy, which has seen donations to the building and renovation of schools and hospitals, provision of scholarships and medical assistance to the underprivileged. Most remarkably, the businessman’s contributions to Federal Government’s Victims’ Support Fund (VSF) in the North East to enable casualties of Boko Haram insurgency regain their livelihood.
“He wishes the businessman longer life, peace and joy.”
