Buhari, in his congratulatory message to the legal luminary, was full of praises for his steadfastness and maximum support in office, despite the ongoing challenges facing them at the helm of affairs in their bid to fix the nation.
"Happy 61st Birthday, Prof Osinbajo. Thank you for being a loyal and dependable partner on this journey. I join millions of your friends and well-wishers around the world to wish you many more years of service to God, to Nigeria, and to humanity," Buhari wrote on Thursday.
