He stated this in a facebook post on Friday on his official page to celebrate the president on his 79th birthday anniversary.
The speaker’s message comes in the wake of bloodbath in the northern part of the country, perpetrated by bandits and other terror groups, with several people and groups in the region, calling out the president for not doing much to address the challenges.
Buhari rode to the number seat in the country on the strength of his anti-corruption campaign and his widely acclaimed integrity posture, popularly known as “MR INTEGRITY.”
However, with over six into his presidency, these two features seem to have dissappered from his administration, as reports of wide spread corruption permeating different organs of government as well as personalities in the administration.
The reps speaker said Buhari has achieved a lot both as an individual and as a leader with uncommon character and integrity.
He also expressed optimism that the president would do a lot more for the country in the remaining period of his administration
He said he was particularly happy with how the president has kept faith with the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Gbajabiamila further opined that Nigeria and Nigerians are proud of the president, saying that the way Buhari has been steering the ship of the Nigerian state has been commendable.
Below is his full message:
I rejoice with President Muhammadu Buhari on his 79th birthday. The President has done great things for Nigeria since he came to power in 2015, he should be celebrated by all well-meaning Nigerians on his birthday.
