He had his early education in Katsina, then went to Kaduna for military training and later Sandhurst in Great Britain, India, and the United States. The former army major-general and military head of state between 1984 and 1985, has now been twice elected as Nigeria’s leader in 2015 and 2019.
It is not clear how the birthday will be marked, but some of his aides and well wishers (Buharists), and others have taken to social media to celebrate him.
