“It is a milestone in my life because nobody in my family has ever lived up to 70 years,” Abubakar said.

He lauded the students for “the surprise of a birthday bash’’ and reiterated his commitment to continue to support education in the country.

The former vice president called on the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to suspend the ongoing warning strike for the sake of Nigerian students.

He said that education was the backbone of development, stressing that nothing should be done to jeopardise education
