According to a statement made available to newsmen by his Spokesman, Femi Adesina, Buhari joined family members, friends and colleagues of the erudite scholar and social critic in celebrating all the years of sacrifice in serving the country he loves so much and worked hard to see grow, especially for the benefit of the poor and underprivileged.
