The message read: "Nigeria is blessed to have fathers who have sired children and raised them up to build this great nation to the extent that it has become Africa’s largest economy which has also given the world great gifts like Nollywood, perhaps the most successful diaspora population in the world and an armed forces that have helped keep the peace in Nigeria and many nations around the world.
"With such a legacy, I am proud of Nigeria’s fathers and wish every father this nation is blessed to have a happy Father’s Day. May God bless you and may He bless Nigeria. GEJ."
