Buhari gets goat as gift in Edo


An elderly woman, Egbon Grace, a member of the All Progressives Congress in Ward 7, Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State presented a goat to President Muhammadu Buhari as a gift.

Grace presented the gift to Buhari during his just-concluded two-day official visit to Edo State.

An official said the lady had the opportunity on Monday when Buhari inaugurated the ultra-modern Samuel Ogbemudia College in Benin City.

“Lady Grace braced the odds and came all the way with her surprise gift to Mr. President which she had kept in waiting for the special occasion.

“She tore through the thick crowd, making her way straight to the President who at the time had finished the official engagement and was heading for his waiting car.

“Many in the crowd got emotional seeing the elderly lady pull through the crowd with the goat, determined to make a presentation to the President,” the source said.

It was gathered that Governor Adams Oshiomhole alighted from the President’s convoy to accept the gift.

The source said Grace later had an opportunity to interact briefly with Buhari and the Governor.
