“One of the first to arrive at the villa was Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State who had earlier presented the President with a birthday card,” the report said.
“President Buhari was later joined by his wife, Mrs Aisha, as well as Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, his wife, Mrs Dolapo, and some state governors, at a small party where he cut the cake.
