President Muhammadu Buhari has said that many people needlessly misinterpret his nephew, Mamman Daura.

In a statement released in celebration of Daura’s 81st birthday by Presidential Assistant Garba Shehu, Buhari described Daura as one of Nigeria’s most deserving citizens, committed public servant and consummate administrator.

“Buhari further averred that” without benefiting from his immense experience, intelligence, and expertise, it is difficult to sit down with Daura, “adding that his” unrecognized virtues are his modesty, kindness, and zeal to provide mentoring to those who are fortunate to be with or close to him.

The statement reads in full;



President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Malam Mamman Daura on the occasion of his 81st birthday, describing him as “a dedicated public servant, consummate administrator, and one of our worthiest gentlemen who is widely misunderstood by so many.”

The President said on the occasion that “Mamman Daura is a thoroughbred public administrator with an all-rounded knowledge and experience in life and government.”

According to President Buhari, “it’s impossible to sit down with Daura without gaining from his vast experience, knowledge, and wisdom.”

The President noted that “among Daura’s unappreciated virtues are his humility, compassion and zeal to provide mentoring to many who are privileged to be with him or close to him.”

President Buhari, who also described Daura as “a veteran of Nigeria’s political history and active participant in its development,” said that “the revered journalist and public administrator is needlessly misunderstood.”

He added that “Daura’s experience is not unusual because many great men are not appreciated, which stems from the cynical obsession of many of his critics.”

President Buhari advised Nigerians “to be just and fair-minded in the assessment of public figures like Mamman Daura whose contributions to the development of the country overshadow perceived flaws.”

“As you celebrate the ripe age of 81, may Allah bless you with better health and longer life in the service of Nigeria and mankind. You are a fountain of inspiration and an inexhaustible reservoir of knowledge. We are proud of your invaluable support.

“I wish you more abundant blessings from God. Happy birthday,” the President told the elder statesman.
