I’m eager to go, it’s been tough – Buhari

By Adekunle Dada

President Muhammadu Buhari has said his seven years in office has been tough and he’s eager to leave office.

Buhari stated this when he received some governors of the All Progressives Congress, legislators and political leaders at his residence in Daura, Katsina State.

According to a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President lamented the toll his official duties had taken on him in the last seven years.

He told the visiting governors and political leaders that he had not been to his house in Daura for close to a year due to the demands of office.

He said, “The observation that I abandoned my base was made by the Emir of Daura, Dr Faruk Umar Faruk, at the eid prayer ground. He held the microphone and told everyone that the last time I was in Daura was during the Eid-el-Kabir of 2021.

“In 10 to 11 months’ time, I will come here. I have a better house in Kaduna, but it is too close to Abuja.”

The President explained that the schedule of work was much, saying he recently had to sympathise with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, who had to be away most of the time from his family.

He claimed that relative to the resources available, and compared to the last administration, the government had done well in many areas, particularly in infrastructure.

“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. I wish the person who is coming after me the very best,” he said.
