THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State has congratulated the Senate President and national leader of the party, Dr Bukola Saraki, on his appointment as an Ambassador-at-Large of the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC).
In a statement signed by its state chairman, Engineer Kola Shittu, the party described the appointment as well-deserved, in view of the Senate President's capacity, astuteness and wealth of experience.
'We are, therefore, not surprised by his appointment as IHRC Ambassador-at-Large. It is well-deserved and is no doubt in recognition of his commitment to the promotion of human rights, justice and sustenance of democracy in Nigeria. 'This international honour is a notable feat, and we are proud of our leader, Dr Bukola Saraki for bringing honour and respect to our dear Kwara State. We urge him not to relent in his selfless service to Kwara State, Nigeria and humanity in general.
'It is gladdening and reassuring that notwithstanding the ceaseless attacks and campaign of calumny against him by some disgruntled politicians, Dr Bukola Saraki continues to soar higher and attracts both local and international recognition.
'Once again, we congratulate the Senate President and wish him the best in his new assignment. We are confident that his performance in this new capacity will surpass the expectations of the IHRC. We hope and pray for more notable successes for our distinguished leader.
'The party also commends the IHRC for finding Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki worthy of the appointment,' the statement read.
