All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate retired General Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated former President Shehu Shagari on his 90th birthday.
A message personally signed by General Buhari on Tuesday said: "although I am physically unable to be present as I am abroad on previously arranged assignments, I wish to send my good wishes to former President Shehu Shagari on his 90th birthday.”
"Alhaji Shehu Shagari is now the Grand Old Man of Nigerian politics, having been in the frame of public affairs since the colonial days," Buhari said.
The APC flag bearer added that "although my government forcibly removed his government, he has always shown me civility and much courtesy. His contributions at the National Council of State meetings which I attend have always been constructive and eloquent.
"I wish the former President many more years of good health and peaceful retirement."
