President Buhari can be described as a man who has seen it all. From his days in the Nigerian military, to his sojourn in the ministry of petroleum and then as a politician, Buhari can be said to have stood the test of time.
Though, the former Head of State is not known as a social person, Buhari’s past achievements are well documented in the Nigerian media and beyond. His life is one that depicts excellence, achievement and service.
