It is very fitting to first thank the Almighty God for your well lived Seventy and two years in which His mercies has been great to you!
The quantity and quality your scintillating terrestrial sojourn has been of an immense stimulus to me, and to many others no doubts, in lessons of magnanimity of mind, selfless generosity and, a peerless epitome of balancing success and family in admirable complementarity.
Your dazzling academic brilliance and dizzying professional competencies and experience have credited and, indeed, improved the profile of the famous quote: “Life is not just how long you live, but what you brought into it” You have peaked on both planks: age and virtuous grace.
The Septuagenarian club is embellished by your entrance, Sir.
I join all your family members, friends and well wishers to wish you a very haply Birthday, as we will continue to relish your soothing presence.
Happy Birthday Sir!
