AS Nigeria’s immediate past President, Muhammadu Buhari clocked 81 years, his accolites under the aegis of Buharists have extolled his sterling qualities, especially what they call his pro-people agenda and his Spartan lifestyle.

In a statement made available to journalists, a Buharist and former Director General of Voice of Nigeria Mr. Osita Okechukwu, recalled how Buhari devoted his public service to the common man.

Mr. Okechukwu recalled how Buhari raised a marshal plan to confront the challenge of food security in the country, regretting that insurgency however slowed down the drive to ensure food sufficiency.

Part of the statement read: “It is with gratitude to Almighty God that we, the Buharists celebrate and proclaim a hearty happy birthday cheers to our icon, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR on his 81 years on earth.

“As we, the Buharists wish him healthier and fruitful years ahead, we recognise that his birthday is the appropriate time to recount his pro-people policies, his resistance to World Bank’s anti-peoples policies, even as military Head of State.

“Billions of naira in bail-out funds were granted to state governments, social investment programme, reduction of infrastructural deficit and the famous Buhari’s unprecedented agrarian revolution to enhance Nigerians prosperity.

“We, the Buharists, make bold to state that because of his passion for food security he invested more than any other federal government in agriculture post 1970. Regrettably, we lament the truism that palpable insecurity diminished his quest for food security as his credo was, we must produce what we eat.”

The Buharists therefore, appealed to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to continue with some of the laudable progammes, “particularly Buhari’s Agrarian Revolution like the Green Imperative Program designed to mechanise agriculture nationwide and Anchor Borrowers Programme,” under whatever nomenclature.

“We are happy that President Tinubu promised to continue with our icon’s initiatives, because that is a befitting way to honour the image of this great Nigerian who loves the poor and cares for the nation,” Okechukwu stated.
