President Buhari was born on December 17, 1942, in Daura, Katsina. He is the 23rd child of his father Adamu.
He was raised by his single mother Zulaihat, because he lost his father as a little boy.
Buhari’s victory at the 2015 presidential election, marks the first time in the history of politics in Nigeria that an incumbent president lost to an opposition candidate in an election.
Despite his challenges during the military rule and fourth attempt as a president, his love for the country has fetched him a presidential seat in a democratic dispensation.
As the commander in chief of the Armed Forces celebrates his birthday today, olosho360.com.ng has gathered birthday wishes from Nigerians.
