Tolerating: President Buhari has said that he can’t wait to go home after eight years of being President of Nigeria.
While speaking at his final Sallah homage held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday, April 21, the President described himself as being lucky to have led Nigeria in various capacity which is as governor, minister, head of state and President.
He thanked the residents of Abuja for tolerating him in the last seven and half years.
“I can’t wait to go home…I deliberately arranged to be as far away as possible from you people.
I have got what I have asked and will quietly retire to my home town in Daura,” the President said.
He said he considered the Sallah celebration as a good coincidence to say goodbye and to “thank you for tolerating me for eight years.”
“I am counting the days. Democracy is a good thing otherwise how can somebody from the other side be a president for two terms.
My home town to Niger Republic is 8 kilometers.
