Yes, something sweet is happening to the president of Nigeria tomorrow, December 17, 2015. But before you get into the know, let’s go on a short history ride.

The people’s president was born December 17, 1942 in Daura! Yes, he will be 73 tomorrow! The politician who has endeared himself to Nigerians, will be adding to his years in a few hours and Naij.com has compiled a list of how the president has fared since 2014.

1. He survived Boko Haram attack in Kaduna. Buhari was the target of one of thebomb attacks that happened in Kaduna on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. A source close to Buhari at that time disclosed that a second bomb explosion that rocked the Kawo bus station in Kaduna appeared to have targeted the then presidential aspirant’s convoy.

It was gathered that the retired general survived the attack but three of his aides and security personnel on the train to Daura, his hometown, were confirmed injured in the afternoon blast. The source said that the bombers had trailed the former head of state’s convoy and detonated the bomb as the convoy neared a bridge in Kawo.

2. President Muhammadu Buhari personally vaccinated one of his grandchildren against polio in Abuja on Saturday, July 25, 2015, to show commitment in eradicating the deadly virus in Nigeria.

According to Femi Adesina, the presidential special adviser on media and publicity, the action demonstrated safety and efficiency of the vaccine as well

3. During the pre-election periods, he survived numerous hate ‘attacks’ thrown at him. From the newspaper advert of Ekiti state governor where Nigerians were warned of an ‘imminent’ northern death, to former first lady, Patience Jonathan, tagging him ‘brain dead’, his certificate saga and more, it was obvious that the birthday ‘boy’ has a strong personality. He rose above those hate speeches among several others before emerging as the president.

4. Some weeks ago, President Muhammadu Buhari was in Malta to take part in the 2015 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting which commenced on Friday, November 27. The Head of the Commonwealth, Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II,honoured the birthday ‘boy’ by hosting a banquet on his behalf and other participating Heads of State and Government.

5. And one of the biggest things that happened to him between 2014 and now, is the fact that he emerged the Nigerian president! According to the official result of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the celebrant, who contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), won 15,424,921 votes or 53.95 percent of the 28,587,564 total valid votes cast.

His nearest rival, President Goodluck Jonathan, 58, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), won 12,853,162 (44.96 percent) at the election.

Hearty cheers to the president!

Brazilian footballer Neymar faces fresh police questioning over claim he raped a model in Paris hotel room

Published

Brazilian footballer, Neymar, 26, will be questioned for the second time over claims he raped a model in a Paris Hotel room.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has reportedly agreed to fly into São Paulo in Brazil to meet with detectives over the alleged rape attack on 26-year-old model, Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza. 

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr. Juliana Lopes Bussacos, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: ‘He will be treated like any other citizen. He has the same rights as any other man.

‘I have interviewed many men in these situations and everyone is equal and they all have the right to tell their story and produce evidence to back it up.’

With detectives desperate to get to the bottom of what happened,  Dr. Juliana said she couldn’t enter into details of the rape accuser’s complaint due to confidentiality.

‘There are so many questions and answers that need clarification. He says he did not rape her and she has said she has evidence.

The former Barcelona striker is expected to give his statement in the next 48 hours, and then officers will decide if there is a case and if it is necessary to bring them together.

This comes after it was revealed that Neymar could be cleared of the rape accusation levied against him within days over lack of more evidence from his accuser.

The Brazilian model has been informed by her lawyer that she faces seeing her case against the Paris Saint-Germain star dropped except there is more evidence. She also faces losing the second lawyer to represent her after he said he could not carry on if his professional ‘trust’ in her was compromised.

Trindade’s attorney Danileo Garcia de Andrade said he still believed Ms. Trindade had a case, but he would step aside if there was a lack of evidence.

Mr. Daileo said he had given her a deadline to produce the video and photographs she claimed to have had which would help prove her allegations of rape against the Brazilian superstar. But if the evidence was not forthcoming, he said, he would drop the case next week.

Mr de Andrade told Brazil’s UOL Esporte: ‘If the police investigation of the supposed break-in where she lives shows there was no break-in, I am leaving the case.’

He added: ‘The attorney-client relationship is based always on trust. If there is no trust, then there is no reason to stay on’

Trindade claimed she was the victim of ‘aggression and rape’ by the Paris Saint-Germain player in a hotel room in the French capital on May 15. She said the encounter started out consensual but quickly turned violent, leaving her with bruises and scrapes to her legs and buttocks, with Neymar refusing to stop.

She told police her tablet containing a seven-minute video, messages and photos she alleged incriminated the footballer, was stolen in a burglary at her apartment. But the authorities said they found no major signs of a break-in and only Ms. Trindade’s fingerprints and those of her maid and friends around the flat.

Neymar has strongly denied raping her but admitted that what happened between them was consensual.
