The President in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, described his predecessor as an icon of truth, justice, and patriotism.
President Tinubu also mentioned the Ex-president’s goal to improve Nigeria’s defence architecture as well as improving import substitution with the empowerment of millions of Nigerian farmers in his progressive initiative to enhance food security in the country.
“President Buhari is from the rarest phylum of virtuous servant-leaders. He has devoted his life to the service of the nation, even earning himself detention for his patriotism and service to our Fatherland.
“The emergence of leaders like my good friend, Buhari, happens only by divine orchestration. He is a man of absolute and undiluted integrity. His yea is yea, and his nay is nay,” the President said.
