The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) is full of praises for former President, Olusegun Obasanjo (OBJ) as he marks his 84th birthday.
The PDP took to its official Twitter handle, @OfficialPDPNig to celebrate the former leader saying that Obasanjo ran a visionary administration leading to the revamping of the nation’s productive sectors and settling of the country’s foreign debts.
The PDP also said that the Obasanjo administration turned Nigeria into an international investment destination thereby elevating her from a pariah and debtor nation to becoming one of the fastest growing economies of the world.
