President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with his longtime associate and senior professional colleague, General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (rtd), on the occasion of his 79th birthday.
The President describes General Danjuma as “one of that rare breed of Nigerian leaders, who have consistently proven themselves able and trustworthy in the varying positions they had occupied in government over time.”
He says of the retired General that “each of the many times he has been called upon to serve Nigeria, both in the military and as a civilian, his performance has been remarkable.”
President Buhari prayed that God would grant General Danjuma many more years of good health and active service to Nigeria, particularly as he oversees the incipient effort to develop the North-east of the country, ravaged by boko haram terrorists.
General Danjuma was at different times, Chief of Army Staff and Minister of Defence.
