“Queen Elizabeth II is the first British monarch to rule for seven decades, according to President Buhari.”
The president also noted in his statement to honor the special occasion when Queen Elizabeth II had achieved a number of milestones, including becoming the youngest ever seated on the throne, handling her duty with confidence and elegance, and now serving the longest.
However, He praised the queen as a devoted, patriotic and compassionate leader who served the people as a friend and compatriot rather than a ruler.
People never lose faith in Queen Elizabeth, according to Buhari. Their fervent opinion is that he has the ability to deliver at any time, especially in difficult circumstances.
It is also proof that Queen Elizabeth always acts and delivers in accordance with the expectations of the public.
“In her lonely road to the throne, and so soon after the death of her husband and main supporter, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, I and all our people wish her many more years as Queen of England and Head of the Commonwealth, in perfect health.”
