He spoke on Tuesday in Abuja when a coalition of his supporters, Buhari/Osinbajo Social Media Supporters and The Buharists came to congratulate him on the occasion of his 77th birthday.
Buhari, who was represented at the occasion by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina said: “I appreciate the youths and thank you for remembering me on a special day like this. It is a special day for me as I just finished signing the 2020 Appropriation Bill into law.”
He said that for him, the day was significant because some people thought it was impossible for the Budget to be signed in December. “Before now, the minimum time it will take to sign the Budget is seven months, but after two months the budget has been signed,” the President added.
The leader and convener of the groups, Blessing Chenfa, said: “We came to show support for the President and the Government, we deemed it fit to come here today to celebrate our President, because we want to appreciate him for the good things that he has been doing for Nigeria, with Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria is on a firmer ground and we thank God for that.”
A gift was presented to the President by the youths.
