Grace Egbon an elderly lady in Benin City, capital of Edo state, has donated a goat to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The woman said she decided to present the gift to Buhari to show her admiration for “his selfless lifestyle and passion to liberate the masses”.

Egbon, who said she had been longing to meet the president, had the opportunity when Buhari  was commissioning the ultra-modern Samuel Ogbemudia College in the state capital.

“She tore through the thick crowd, making her way straight to the president who at the time had finished the official engagement and was heading for his waiting car,” NAN quoted a protocol official at the scene of the incident as saying.

“Many in the crowd got emotional seeing the elderly lady pull through the crowd with the goat, determined to make a presentation to the president.

“Gov. (Adams) Oshiomhole, who noticed the security cordon between the lady and the president, came to her rescue.

“He (Oshiomhole) alighted from the president’s convoy to receive the goat on behalf of the president.”

She thanked the president for accepting the gift, which was reportedly handed over to protocol officials.
