The President said “Garba Umar is a gentleman and a decent politician who doesn’t believe in the notorious do-or-die politics.”
“I am proud of Garba Umar because he puts dignity and principles before blind ambition for power. We need such gentlemen like him in our national politics,” President Buhari added.
“As you mark your 73rd birthday anniversary, I send you my best wishes and goodwill on this happy occasion. I wish you many more happy and prosperous years ahead. May Allah bless you with more good health,” the President prayed.
