The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has felicitated with the Abia State Governor, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu on his birthday anniversary.
The former vice president, who is currently in Paris for a business meeting, hailed Ikpeazu in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle.
He wrote, “On behalf of my family, I join friends and well-wishers to celebrate the governor of Abia State, H.E Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu.
“May God Almighty grant you more years in good health and service to the benefit of the good people of Abia State and humanity”.
