President Muhammadu Buhari turned 76 on Monday and accolades have continued to pour in. 

His Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, gave the President a social gift, with accolades lacing it. 

It was a post on his Twitter page with an image of President Buhari and he wrote: "To a man, who has been exemplary in life and his commitment to Nigeria.

"To a man who has a great sense of humour. To a man who genuinely loves the Nigerian people and to a man I am privileged to call Boss, Happy 76th Birthday!".

President Buhari marked his birthday in Aso Rock with cakes that were large enough to feed a dozen people.

One was a combination of white and blue colours with his image engraved on it.

Those who ambushed me at the State House with a surprise celebration, and all of you who sent in greetings from around the country and the world. Thank you very much. May the Almighty God bless you all". 

He is 76 and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked him to go back to his home town and rest.

At the event to mark the 76th birthday, President Buhari highlighted what Nigerians should expect from him.

"I am thankful to God for keeping me going, I will continue to serve Nigeria with all dedication and commitment.

"This is the only country we have, and we will make it work.

"We will continue to remind Nigerians of the situation we met the country in, in 2015, and what we have been able to achieve since then, with the resources available to us.
