It is Father's Day and many Nigerian fathers are celebrating. 

A former President, Goodluck Jonathan, took time out to wish Nigerian fathers well, dropping few lines of eulogies for them. 

He considers Nigeria a blessed nation for having "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".

Dr. Jonathan further described Nigerian fathers as "perhaps the most successful diaspora population in the world".
