I value your wise counsel, Buhari thanks Anyaoku at 84

President Muham­madu Buhari has congratulated seasoned diplomat, elder statesman, ad­ministrator and former Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, who turns 84 years to­morrow.
In a statement it is­sued on Tuesday, the Presidency said that Buhari, on behalf of the Federal Government, his family, and Nigeri­ans extended felicita­tion to Anyaoku.
The statement reads: “The President joins the diplomatic com­munity, the Anglican Church, where he served many years as a chorister, and Chief Anyaoku’s family and friends in celebrating the quintessential dip­lomat, whose distin­guished international career attracted many national and interna­tional laurels, especially after serving as the third Secretary-General of the Commonwealth.
“President Buhari be­lieves Chief Anyaoku’s footprints as a teacher, who was renowned for being very articulate and meticulous, and diplomatic, during whose stewardship as the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth apartheid was peaceful­ly replaced by non-ra­cial democracy in South Africa, will remain in­delible for posterity to cherish and emulate.
