President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, will keep reminding Nigerians how much they have achieved despite the resources available to them.
He called on Nigerians to continue to give him more time, charging them to continue to show more understanding of his administration’s policies aimed at transforming the nation.
Buhari said this during the special parade that the Guards brigade of the Nigerian army organised in commemoration of his 76th birthday.
He said, “Nigerians should continue to pray for me and understand my intentions and give me time.
“We will keep reminding Nigerians about what we have done, how we met the country, what we were able to do from the time we came in to now with the resources available to us,” he said.
The ceremony began with a special rendition that ushered the president into the forecourt where the special parade was mounted by the guards brigade.
This was then followed by a special performance by the silent drill squad of the brigade, which included the formation of words like PMB @ 76, also wishing the president “Happy Birthday’’ with their musical gadgets.
The peak of the event was the presentation of birthday cards to the celebrant.
