Muhammadu Buhari GCFR (born 17 December 1942) is a Nigerian politician currently serving as the President of Nigeria, in office since 2015. He is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and previously served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985, after taking power in a military coup d’état. The term Buharism is ascribed to the Buhari military government.
He unsuccessfully ran for the office of president of Nigeria in the 2003, 2007, and 2011 general elections. In December 2014, he emerged as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the March 2015 general elections. Buhari won the election, defeating the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan. This marked the first time in the history of Nigeria that an incumbent president lost to an opposition candidate in a general election. He was sworn in on 29 May 2015. In February 2019, Buhari was re-elected President, defeating his closest rival Atiku Abubakar by over 3 million votes.
Buhari has stated that he takes responsibility for anything over which he presided during his military rule, and that he cannot change the past. He has described himself as a “converted democrat”.
Muhammadu Buhari was born to a Fulani family on 17 December 1942, in Daura, Katsina State, to his father Hardo Adamu, a Fulani chief, and mother Zulaihat. He is the twenty-third child of his father. Buhari was raised by his mother, after his father died when he was about four years old.
FG Must Not Be Selective About Border Closure – Youth Empowerment Association
The President of the Concerned Youth Empowerment Association, Mr Noble Adaelu has warned against selective approach in the effort to make our Nigeria’s borders free from smuggling.
Mr. Noble shared this as a reaction to rumors that Ghana brought in different commodities to partcipate in the Lagos International Trade Fair.
According to him, letting other nations to bring goods into the country under any guise while the borders remained close would allow all sorts of compromises that would weaken FG’s current stance on the matter.
His words, “If Ghana is allowed to bring in her goods to the Trade Fair, it further exposes the insincerity of purpose and corruptible character of some Nigerian government officials handling cross border trade issues.
“The Federal Government should purge itself of these characters and face the reality of purpose because drawing a selective approach over the land border closure is wrong and places Nigeria on a wrong stand.”
“Repackaging of goods denies the true identify of a product. A responsible producer and exporter recognises the dignity of identity and would not to hide it.
“So, it is a criminal attempt to hide the production details of the product by repackaging it. I therefore subscribe to Federal Government’s conditions on this. If it is not an expired product and below standardisation, why do they repackage.
“Even if the borders are reopened with no professional discipline, repackaged and low standardised goods will still find their way into the country.
“The management of Nigerian Immigration Service and Nigeria Custom Service should go back to the drawing board and define a disciplinary measure for their officers.
“Is it not clear they are living above their income? Where do they make such money from if not from all these unscrupulous importers.”
