The planned special birthday parade to be mounted by the Brigade of Guards as part of activities to mark President Muhammadu Buhari’s 75th birthday has been cancelled.

A source close to the Presidency, which confirmed the development in Abuja on Sunday, did not give reasons for the cancellation.

The Advocate learnt that the President’s family, led by his wife, Aisha and some Presidential Aides led by the President’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, had planned a low-key birthday celebration for the President where they would present birthday cards to him.

It would be recalled that President Buhari had in 2016 inspected a special parade mounted by the Brigade of Guards as part of activities to mark his 74th birthday anniversary which coincided with his daughter’s (Zahra) wedding.

Zahra got married to Ahmed Indimi, the son of a multibillionaire oil tycoon, Mohammed Indimi, in another low-key event.
