Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has assured that he will retire to his Daura hometown, Katsina State to rest from the rigours of office and to avoid problems, when he exits from office on May 29, 2023.
President Buhari stated this while hosting residents of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, who paid him Christmas homage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Speaking at the homage, the President said, “Thank you very much for taking your time to come and visit me and I congratulate you for this great day (Christmas). I have promised a lot of my colleagues that I will try and be as far away as possible from Abuja when I leave office, so that nobody can create any problem for me anymore.
Said he:“I will be in Daura, which is on the border with Niger Republic and I think in spite of technology, I will be safe enough there.”
He expressed his appreciation to Nigerians for trusting, supporting and giving him the opportunity to serve as their leader.
He told the delegation, led by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mohammed Bello that while campaigning for President in 2003, he took his time to visit the 774 Local Government Areas of the country and he got overwhelming support from the people.
He used the occasion to once again assure Nigerians that he will not stay in office a day longer that the stipulated time of his tenure in office.
According to him:-“I thank God that before the 2019 elections I went round the whole of the States and in 2003-2011, I went to all the Local Governments in this country and I thank Nigerians, the people who turned up in every Local Government were more than what anyone can buy. So, I was pleased with the way Nigerians highly treated me and accepted me. In five months’ time, I will happily retire according to the provisions of the constitution of the country and go back home,” he added.
