The first set of people to note the birthday of anyone would be those that know his nativity or where he started from.
Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan celebrated 63 years on November 20, 2020. Therefore his family gathered to celebrate the elder statesman who is now being appreciated Africa wide and even globally for his job as envoy, sometimes on behalf of the Commonwealth of nations, the African Union, the ECOWAS sub region and the world.
My family has been an integral part of my life's journey, they have been my strength and a source of my success. This morning they did something unusual, from all corners of the town they assembled in my home offering prayers and thanksgiving to God for the gift of life.November 20, 2020

On behalf of the Federal Government, and Nigerians in general, I congratulate former President @GEJonathan on his 63rd birthday, today. We celebrate a life of service that has brought honour and goodwill to Nigeria.— Muhammadu Buhari (@MBuhari) November 20, 2020
The only People’s Democratic Party governor in the South West, Seyi Makinde would also not be left out.

Happy 63rd birthday, President Jonathan.
