Buhari talked about this when he spoke to visitors who were celebrating with him on Sallah Day. He was at the State House on Friday, April 21.
Buhari said he wants to go to Daura to rest. It’s far from Abuja where he works. His spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said this in a statement.
He said, “I am very excited to go back to Daura.”
“If they are loud and bother me in Daura, I will go to Niger.”
I purposely chose to be very far away. “I got what I wanted and I’ll go home quietly,” he said.
The leader thanked the people of Nigeria for electing him in both 2015 and 2019 without any money given to them. Some even went to his rallies just to see him.
He said to the people listening that his travels were not easy, and he was put in prison for three years after being removed from being in charge during a coup in August 1984.
Buhari tried to become a leader three times in 2003, 2007, and 2011, but he didn’t win any of those times.
He said it was silly to use someone’s ethnicity or religion in elections. He mentioned that in the past, he lost cases in the Supreme Court because the judges were Northern Muslims from areas like Kaduna, Niger, and Jigawa.
He pointed out why democracy is good. It lets people take part and feel like they belong in the government.
God allowed me a great chance to help the nation. We are all people. If I have hurt anyone while doing my duty for our country, I am sorry and ask for forgiveness. I’m sorry to everyone I hurt. Please forgive me.
The President said, “It’s good that I’m saying goodbye and thanking you for putting up with me for almost eight years.”
