Distinguished Senator Ngaji is not only a politician but a leader with an impeccable character who always aligned himself with the greatest good for Yala LGA, Cross River State and Nigeria in his political sojourn.

He is a lover of humanity, a patriot, and a visionary Nigerian that is blessed with keen foresight to see into the future and thus acted accordingly to be part of such future. While playing active politics, his affinity to his people in terms of accessibility, feedbacks and prompt responses was top notch. His spirit of giving back to the people without disconnecting from them is second to none. This is one of the lessons majority of the people would want some of our leaders to emulate from him as he is a year older today.

Today, I like to join friends and family members to wish Sen. Greg Ikaba Ngaji a happy birthday and joyful anniversary. I wish him many more years of healthy living and pray God to bless him with continuing sound health of mind and body.

From all of us @, we say congratulations and happy birthday Sir.
