This picture throws us back to 1973 when Gen Gowon who was a 39-year-old Head of State at the time shook hands with Justin Trudeau, the son of the then Prime Minister of Canada Elliot Trudeau.

Justin was voted in as the Prime Minister of Canada and will take office on November 4

It’s however amazing how the tables have changed 42 years later. A 43 year old man is the Prime Minister of Canada and unlike 1973, a 72-year-old is the President of Nigeria.
