Less than two weeks left to the day when Nigerians will decide the future of their country. We’d like to give you a glance on throwback pictures of one of the candidates, General Muhammadu Buhari from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The photos were published on Twitter by one Idris Ayodeji Bello (@idrisayobello).
General who took power from the democratically elected administration of President Shehu Shagari in a military coup d’état, was Head of State from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985.
One of those present with Buhari in the Ilaro pictures, General Ibrahim Babangida, led the August 1985 coup that threw him out.
The Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro was established in July 1979 and began receiving students in November, same year, from a temporary site at Ilaro, Ogun State.
In 1983, same year Buhari assumed power, the polytechnic moved to its permanent site, a massive 898.116 hectares land area, along Ilaro/Oja-Odan Road, about three kilometres from Ilaro township.
It should be noted that Gombe State receives today General Buhari, a day after the bomb blast hit the city after the rally of incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.
