The actual birthday date was Thursday, February 2, 2012 and to celebrate hitting the very significant age-40 years old (a number that has come to symbolize a rebirth or the beginning of a new life), family members and friends threw for him a private party that had ‘just about a hundred guests’ in attendance. The venue was the very imposing mansion atop the hill in Minna i.e. General Babangida’s Hilltop Mansion in the Niger state’s capital, which many have said is a replica of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa. Some of those in attendance said it was a fantastic party. We are still waiting to receive the party pictures to bring to your viewing delight.
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO THE QUIET GENTLEMAN.
