The Northern Governors Forum has felicitated with elder statesman, Col. Sani Bello on his 80th birthday.
Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong in a message said Col. Bello, the father of one of his colleagues, the Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, has served Nigeria.
“The celebrant continues to offer his wise counsel and vast knowledge for the development of the country”, said Lalong.
He described him as a noble Nigerian who has distinguished himself in his military career and discharged his duties diligently both as Military Administrator of old Kano State, and one-time Nigerian High Commissioner to Zimbabwe.
Lalong said Col. Bello remains an epitome of humility, honesty, hard work and compassion where he continues to use his opportunities to impact the lives of less privileged members in the society through his foundation and educational institutions.
While wishing him many more years of God’s blessings and protection, Governor Lalong urged the elder statesman to continue to offer his wise counsel and vast experience to the Northern Governors Forum as they address the challenges facing the region.
