Unlike previous years when Independence Day has been celebrated with a lot of fanfare by the Head of State at the Eagle Square in Abuja, this year’s celebration in honour of Nigeria 55th Independence Day anniversary was more of a low key event at the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock.
The event was the ceremonial change of guards which held at the forecourt of the seat of power and it was the first time the embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki was seen at the Presidential Villa since he emerged Senate President.
It is no secret that Saraki openly went against the APC leadership to emerge Senate President and since his legal issues which saw him charged with 13 counts of corruption in court last week, Buhari has not publicly said a word in his defence or otherwise.
So it was very interesting to see the Number 1 & Number 3 citizen laughing like BFFs at the Independence Day anniversary today.
