President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Maradin Katsina and District Head of Kurfi Local Government, Katsina state, Alhaji Ahmadu Kurfi, on his 90th birthday, congratulating him for meritorious service to the nation, working as Permanent Secretary, Secretary of the National Population Census Commission and Executive Secretary of the Federal Electoral Commission (FEDECO).
The president commended Kurfi for his diligent and adventurous spirit, which saw him joining the public service in 1951 as a classroom teacher, and variously working with the Katsina Native Authority, Northern Nigerian Government, Northern Nigeria States Produce Marketing Board, and as an electoral officer in the elections that heralded independence in 1959.
As the Maradin Katsina turns 90, the president said he believes that his investments in the nation and humanity would always remain relevant, especially for sharing his vast experience and wisdom in seven books, mostly on electoral matters that have since become reference materials for individuals and institutions.
