@Naija Politico

Today, Nigeria’s President is 76years old. We Pray for long life, good health of mind and body.
Nairaland join the good people of Nigeria to wish our President a happy Birthday.

Muhammadu Buhari is a native of Daura, a Fulani town situated in Katsina State of Nigeria. He was born on December 17, 1942. He is the twenty-third child of his father, Adamu.

Buhari was raised by his mother, Zulaihat after his father died when he was about four years old. He attended primary school in Daura and Mai’adua before proceeding to Katsina Model School in 1953 and to Katsina Provincial Secondary School (now Government College Katsina) from 1956 to 1961.

Military career

Buhari joined the army in the year 1962 and became the governor of the North-Eastern State during the regime of Gen. Murtala Mohammed. Later, he was appointed Minister or Federal Commissioner for Petroleum and Natural Resources during the military regime of General Olusegun Obasanjo in 1976. When the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation was created in 1977 Muhammadu Buhari was made its head.

On December 31, 1983, the government of the civilian President Shehu Shagari was removed in a coup d’etat, Major-General Buhari was selected by the high ranking military officials to lead the country.

Muhammadu Buhari is known for his uprightness and zero tolerance for corruption. He introduced a public campaign against indiscipline known as “War Against Indiscipline” (WAI) alongside his deputy, Tunde Idiagbon.

Electoral Battles

President Buhari contested the Presidential election as the candidate of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP) in 2003 and lost to Peoples Democratic Party nominee, Olusegun Obasanjo.

In the 2007 April Presidential polls, Buhari contested against his brother from Katsina State, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and he lost.

Gen. Buhari was the CPC Presidential candidate in the April 16, 2011 general election, running against former president Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), and Ibrahim Shekarau of ANPP, again he lost. In the year 2015, Muhammadu Buhari not deterred by his previous failures, contested for the Presidential election under the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) with Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. Muhammadu Buhari emerged the winner and was declared the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Marriage

In 1971, Buhari married his first wife, Safinatu Buhari (nee Yusuf) ( December 1983-August 1985). They had five children together, Zulaihat (Zulai) is named after Buhari’s mother. Their other
children were Fatima, Musa (deceased), Hadiza, and Safinatu.

In 1988, Buhari divorced his first wife Safinatu. In December 1989, he married his second and current wife Aisha Buhari (nee Halilu). They also have five children together, a boy and four girls. They are Aisha, Halima, Yusuf, Zarah and Amina. Yusuf and Zahra graduated last year from the University of Surrey, United Kingdom. Halima was called to the Nigerian Bar as a Barrister at Law.

President Buhari is an accomplished Personality and the first citizen of our Motherland, Nigeria.

You forgot to add that he had been rearing 150 cows since 1985, and the cows have not increased in number.

Buhari you broke record as the oldest man to rule the country.
But please we have had enough of your mediocrity. Don't tempt us by attempting to rig yourself back to power next year. The handwriting is very bold on the wall.........
YOU ARE RETURNING TO DAURA TO YOUR 150 COWS NEXT YEAR TO PERMANENTLY BE WITH THEM.

Useless Man!

Buhari should do this country one favour and we will remain grateful: DROP DOWN AND DIE! A very useless man who achieved basically nothing in life. If not that some Yorubas foolishly gave this man their vote, Buhari will always remain a failure and never make it in life. A criminal that cancelled the Lagos rail project. A criminal that truncated a democratically elected government of Shehu Shagari and enthroned militancy. I can never hate and dislike this man enough. If not that God is using Buhari to punish Nigerians, Buhari would have been long dead from the prayers of Nigerians! He is just like the Biblical Pharaoh God used and punished the Israelites!

MAY BUHARI AND ALL WHO SUPPORT HIM NEVER MAKE IN 2019. AMEN!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY of the nation, whether the devil(s) like it or not, here is the President of everyone in Nigeria till 2023 Insha Allah.
We pray for long life in Good health and prosperity for you and the nation during your tenure.
Age gracefully sir!


TRUE CONFESSION from :

People have been asking how much we were paid to campaign for Buhari , We always deny the allegation. The new year is around the corner and we want to come clean.
Yes we were paid to campaign for Buhari 
Buhari himself paid us.
He paid us when he started completing abandoned projects, he paid us when he paid pensioners, he paid us when after 35 years of paper work he finally brought a train to Warri.
Yes he paid us to campaign for him
He paid us when he allowed even those that curse him to access N-power and Tradermoni. He paid us when he prevented fuel marketers from going on strike that would have lead to untold hardship during the holiday period
He paid us, and handsomely too. 
For more of these payments we and every sane, honest and hardworking Nigerians are voting for PMB come 2019.
PMB 2019!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!
We will be there to celebrate your 80th birthday with you in 2023 at Aso Rock by the special grace of God!

Damn revisionists.

Buhari led the coup that toppled a democratically elected government of Shagari whose senate was investigating the billions found in a UK bank account alleged to be Buhari's. That coup by Buhari wasn't just coincidental, it was deliberate to stem that investigation.

May the tears and blood of those who have been needlessly affected by his inability or unwillingness to preserve lives and limbs and formulate endearing policies be on Buhari's head.

May Buhari's way be dark and slippery, and may the angel of death pursue him.
