Wow! Buhari in Throwback Pix with Classmates During Infantry Brigade Refresher Course in Congo DR in the Early 1980s

You won’t believe this smash throwback photo that calls up lovely memories. Current president of Nigeria is pictured here posing for photograph with his co-military officers during a senior officers’ refresher course held in Kwilu Ngongo, a town in the Western Democratic Republic of Congo.

Well, we only recognize one of Buhari’s classmates standing exactly behind him, one certain Brigadier General Friday Akeni (Retired) who served in peace-keeping missions in Mogadishu before retiring years ago. After the refresher course pictured here, Brigadier Friday Akeni also got married to one of the women from a village in Kwilu Ngongo where they had the course. He was the only one that returned to Nigeria with a Congo wife. Please who can identify others?

Don’t mind us, this is a Photoshop pix of ex-students of Mass Communication Department, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam campus. These guys graduated several years ago and are doing well in the society.

Keep it up guys. Nice throwback photo.
