President Muhammadu Buhari has celebrated with his longtime associate and senior professional colleague, Lieutenant General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (rtd), on the occasion of his 79th birthday.

The President, through a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, described General Danjuma as “one of that rare breed of Nigerian leaders, who have consistently proven themselves able and trustworthy in the varying positions they had occupied in government over time.”

He said of the retired General that “Each of the many times he has been called upon to serve Nigeria, both in the military and as a civilian, his performance has been remarkable.”

President Buhari prayed that God would grant him many more years of good health and active service to Nigeria, particularly as he oversees the incipient effort to develop the North-East of the country, which, according to the statement, had been ravaged by Boko Haram terrorists.
