“I’m happy to have met this great Nigerian. He is a genuinely concerned stakeholder in the fortunes of Nigerian sports, particularly basketball, into which he has continued to spend several millions of his personal funds to help develop.
“On this occasion of his birthday, I pray that God continue to protect and bless him more. I pray also that God grant him good health and longer life, to His glory,” Egbayelo prayed.
On his part, National Chairman of Nigeria Football Supporters Club, Ambassador (Rev). Samuel Ikpea, pray that above everything, God should bless Kida with good health, longer life, peace and happiness.
“Engr. Musa Kida is a blessing to Nigeria and humanity. I believe posterity will not forget all the good things he is doing for Nigeria and the youths of this country. As he celebrates his birthday, I pray that God will continue to bless and protect him and his family,” Ikpea prayed.
