The President, General Muhammadu Buhari marked his 79th birthday in Turkey.
The Commander-in-Chief remarked that he thought he had escaped any form of attention, but the Guards Brigade took him by surprise.
“I had thought that being away from Abuja, I will escape a celebration. The Guards Brigade had written to tell me what they wanted to do on this day. Now here we, far away in Turkey, and I still didn’t escape,” he said.
“I look forward to 2023 when I finish my tenure, to go home to take charge of my farm. Between now and that time, I will do the best that is possible to advance the interest of the nation and its people, and carry out my duties as prescribed by the Constitution.
“I thank the Almighty God for this day. Now the work continues!
