… says ‘I’ve not been in my Daura house for almost one year’
. People appreciate our personal sacrifices – President
. Wishes successor ‘the very best’
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, expressed eagerness to hand over power to his successor, saying that holding the reins of governance in the country in the past seven years has been tough for him.
The President bared his mind when he received some governors of the All Progressives Congress, lawmakers and party chieftains at his residence in Daura, Katsina State.
On Friday, Buhari had travelled to Daura ahead of the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
He, however, advised his guests to be mindful in helping many Nigerians seeking opportunities.
“By this time next year, I would have made the most out of the two terms, and the remaining months I will do my best,” he said.
Buhari told the governors and political leaders that the tough demands of his office had kept him away from his house in Daura in almost one year.
He, however, disclosed that he would retire to Daura, not Kaduna, where he had a more comfortable residence.
“I wish the person who is coming after me the very best,” he said.
On the worsening insecurity, the President said the North West had posed more challenges, while some success had been recorded in the North East and South South.
“I am eager to go. I can tell you it has been tough. I am grateful to God that people appreciate the personal sacrifices we have been making,” he added.
