The Northern States Governors Forum, NSGF, has eulogized former Head of State, and leader of opposition Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, Muhammadu Buhari, who turns 70 years on Monday, saying the former leader has lived a disciplined and purposeful life.
Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, referred to Mr. Buhari as a thorough bred professional and an astute administrator whose regime set the country on the path of growth and development.
In a statement signed by his spokesperson, Danladi Ndayebo, Governor Aliyu said as Head of State, Mr. Buhari demonstrated uncommon courage, vision and exemplary leadership resulting in development of critical sectors of the nation’s economy.
“There is no gain saying the fact that General Buhari left legacies in all the sectors of the economy with marked transparency and accountability in the management of resources”, the statement said.
