Happy birthday to our legendary leader with the large heart of father, a dogged fighter with gentle spirit, a rare combination of charisma and calmness.
Comrade Joe Ajaero, the General Secretary of National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) and Deputy President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is the master of labour tact and craft.
Through thick and thin, you have charted a course for the labour struggle that has since become a highway across the nation, and making our journey to the promised land more realistic.
Leader of leaders, in your we see a tree fast become a great forest by masterfully raising and mentoring a high profile leaders unto greatness.
May the Almighty God continue to grant you good health, more of his divine wisdom, greater latitude, higher altitude, and above all, open into you greater access to his infinite reservoir of celestial and terrestrial goodness.
Again, I say happy birthday to a primus inter pares in the Nigeria Labour movement and beyond.
Accept my congratulations.
From your protege:
Comrade Opaluwa Eleojo Simeon
Organiser NUEE and Vice Chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress, Kogi State Council.
