(TRADE NEWSWIRE): As fowl crowed in the early morning, moon set and the sun rose on December 17, 1942, nobody ever knew that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Muhammadu Buhari, was about to be given birth to on this special day, TRADE NEWSWIRE reports.
His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari, gracefully clock 74 years on earth with the determination to RECOVER Nigeria from economic crunch and insecurity that had mounted-up in piecemeal along with placing Nigeria on the path to GROWTH.
Yoruba elders say: (Atupa ki i ni iyi ni osan) English meaning (Lamp is never appreciated by mankind in the afternoon).
I asked myself the question: why do I need to celebrate my President on his 74th birthday in the face of economic recession, but I quickly realized what Yoruba elders say:
– (Ohun ti o se igun ti o fi pa lori, bi iru ree ba se agbo, a ti yo iwo re lo) English meaning (What happened to the vulture that made it bald, if ram was faced with similar situation, it would have removed its horn completely)
– (Ohun ti o se ila ti ila fi ko, bi iru ree ba se ikan, a ti wo ewu eje) English meaning (What happened to okro that made it become stringy, if similar thing happened to the eggplant, it would be drenched in blood)
– (Ohun ti o se olowo ti o fi n ro oju, bi o ba se talaka, won a ti gbagbee re) English meaning (What happened to the rich man that made him frown, if it happened to the poor man, he would have been forgotten).
In view of these aforementioned, inspite of the biting economic situation, His excellency, President Mhammadu Buhari deserved to be celebrated on his74th birthday considering his un-relentless efforts to move the country from a disadvantaged state he met it in 2015 to a completive and prosperous one .
Mr. President, come on! Dance for me. Yoruba sings : (Sekere ni Oba njo, Muhammadu Buhari dide ki ojo sekere, sekere ni Oba njo) English meaning (It is a drum made from calabash netted with stringe and cowries-‘Sekere’ that king dances to, Muhammadu Buari stand up on your feet and dance to the sound of ‘Sekere’.
The National Leader of the governing party in Nigeria, the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Akanbi Tinubu also extend his warm greetings to you, he prayed in Yoruba (E fi owo pa ewu, e fi erigi je eja, ninu alafia ati ola nla) English meaning (You will grow old to have enough grey hair and also grow old to eat fish with mouth gum in sound health and prosperity) amin.
(Akalamagbo ko ni s’alai lo egberun odun laye) English (Vulture don’t die not until it clocks 1000 years on earth).
Suratul Fili- T Elephant (Al-Quran, Chapter 105)
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Alam tara kaefa fahala robbuka biashabil fili
Alam yajhal kaedahun fi tadlilim
Wa arsala halaehim toeran ababila
Tarmihim bihijaratin mmin sijjilin
Faja halahun kahas fin mmahkulin
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Have you not considered how Lord dealt with the posessors of the elephant?
Did He not cause their war to end in confusion?
And send down (to pray) upon them birds in flocks
Casting against them stones of baked clay
So, He rendered them like straw eaten up.
HAPPY 74TH BIRTHDAY TO YOU SIR, WISHING YOU LONG LIFE AND PROSPERITY, ALSO CONGRATULATES YOUR FAMILY ON YOUR DAUGHTER’S WEDDING.
NIGERIA SHALL BE GREAT
May God Guide Our Leaders Right
