President Muhammadu Buhari felicitates with elder statesman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, on the occasion of his 85th birthday anniversary.

President Buhari joins members of Tukur’s family, friends and well-wishers in celebrating the former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party and one-time governor of old Gongola State who has devoted a greater part of his extensive political life to supporting democracy in the country and continent.

As an accomplished businessman, pan-Africanist and philanthropist, the President believes that Alhaji Tukur understands very clearly that one of the best human legacies is to invest in people and many Nigerians who came in contact with him in business and politics would continue to cherish that embodiment in his character.
