President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Ogun businessman, Chief Kensington Adebutu as the philanthropist clocks 82 on October 24.

Adebutu is the owner of popular lottery company, Premier Lotto, widely known as ‘Baba Ijebu’.

The president in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Tuesday, lauded Adebutu’s contributions to the growth of the economy.

Buhari also lauded Adebutu for providing jobs to thousands of Nigerians, especially the youth.

He praised the business acumen, hard work and determination that enabled Adebutu to rise from a humble beginning to sit atop a business empire currently.

Buhari affirmed that Adebutu’s philanthropic programmes under the auspices of the Kensington Adebukunola Adebutu Foundation had made life more meaningful for less-privileged Nigerians.

He described as “worthy of emulation” the donations made by Adebutu, especially to educational and religious organisations by the octogenarian.

According to Buhari, such contributions have endeared Adebutu to Nigerians from all parts of the country.

The president prayed that God would grant Adebutu good health and longer life, to continue rendering selfless services to his fatherland and humanity.
