- President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to send a goodwill message to the celebrant of the day, Atiku Abubakar who is 75 today
- According to reports, it is still unclear if this move by the president is intentional or not but Buhari reportedly celebrated his chief of staff today
- Meanwhile, the former vice-president is a big businessman involved in multi-businesses, including the media
Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar is 75 today, Thursday, November 25, without the usual goodwill message from President Muhammadu Buhari.
PM News reports that it was not clear whether the presidential snub was a mere omission or deliberate.
Atiku, despite the political difference with Buhari attended the wedding of Buhari’s first son, Yusuf in Bichi, Kano last August.
The last person Buhari celebrated was his chief of staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, who marked 77 years on Wednesday.

And today, Buhari also hailed Prince Arthur Eze, the billionaire businessman from Anambra, who clocks 73.
It is still possible that Buhari’s aides will rush out a statement before the end of the day as 75th birthday is a milestone for any mortal.
But doubts about political correction abound because Buhari usually sends birthday wishes ahead of the celebration.
