Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, on Friday disclosed why God decided to spare the life of president Buhari.
Adesina who is paying tribute to his boss who clocks 80 on Saturday said God has been merciful to Buhari who has been “in and out of the country many times, attending to his health”.
“I’m sure God must have considered all the virtues Muhammadu Buhari has, and thus decided to spare him. He that has clean hands will grow stronger and stronger, says the Good Book. (Job 17:9).
“This Buhari not only has clean hands, he also has a clean heart. “Imagine year 2017, when the President had severe health challenges. Between January and August of that year, he was in and out of the country many times, attending to his health.
He could have been a goner, but God said no. And God has the final say, no matter what man may wish or desire. And same Buhari is now 80. Simply amazing! Glory be to God.
“By the grace of God, in another five months, the President will land safely. And he will take his well deserved rest, playing with his grandchildren and great grandchildren in his Daura hometown. He’s the man God has shown mercy,” Adesina wrote.
