Mr Adesina expressed gratitude to almighty God for safeguarding the life of Buhari to continue consolidating the achievements recorded in the last three years of his administration.

He, however, advised some disgruntled individuals who wished the President death not to engage in a fruitless mission because “ Man is not God’’.

“I think this should be celebrated to give glory to God because we know what happened for most part of 2017 when the President was away on medical vacation and a sprinkle of people were wishing he would die.

“ But, God knows how to shame people with evil hearts, so he brought the President back home and when he came back, he did not only come back healthy but better than he had ever been.

“So, I will say that those people with evil hearts on a day like this should have a rethink, they should know that man is not God and God is not man.
