President Muhammadu Buhari will clock 76 on Monday 17, December, 2018.

While congratulating the President, IBB stated that “As we get over our mid-seventies, we can say with all sense of modesty that we should celebrate every birthday anniversary with prayers in order for us to thank Allah for all the blessings and the bounties He showered upon us.

“It is only fair that we pause and reflect in our own different ways on all the life’s challenges we face day by day and the positive strides we have been blessed to attain.”

IBB added in the message, which was exclusively obtained by First Weekly Magazine, that a typical day in the life of a Nigerian President requires faith, poise, patience, tenacity, experience, strategic thinking and quality character for one to get through it.

He added that; “You achieved great success in the fight against corruption, terrorism and other forms of insecurity in addition to getting our country out of economic recession.

“It is heart warming that at 76, inspite of the numerous onerous challenges of leadership, you have managed to remain focussed and have shown tremendous energy and vibrancy in running the affairs of state with your acknowledged patriotism and commitment to serve our nation diligently with honesty and sincerity of purpose.”IBB then congratulated the President further for all the achievements, which he said he has recorded in his lifetime and particularly, “for your humility, deep sense of honesty and faith you have shown in the various aspects of governance, politics and democracy as our President.”The former President then joined the First Lady, Aisha, all the children and grandchildren of the President to wish him many happy returns of the day, while welcoming him “to our club of over 75.”
